VIDEO: Evgeny Svechnikov’s shootout winning goal

Detroit Red Wings forward Evgeny Svechnikov made the most of his NHL debut.

Just called up from Grand Rapids earlier in the day, Svechnikov scored the game-winning shootout goal for the Red Wings against the Ottawa Senators in front of a packed Joe Louis Arena crowd.

His backhand deke through the legs of goaltender Craig Anderson sealed the win for Detroit, improving them to 9-0 in the shootout this season.
