By  | 

DETROIT (AP) - Darren Helm scored 3:58 into overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 2-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night in the Western Conference finals and set up a Stanley Cup finals rematch with Pittsburgh.

Detroit's Dan Cleary opened the scoring 6:08 into the third period, and Chicago's Patrick Kane tied it with 7:07 left in regulation with his first goal of the series.

Cristobal Huet, playing for the injured Nikolai Khabibulin, made 44 saves for the Blackhawks. He forced overtime with a spectacular stop from his stomach, lifting his right leg to knock away Johan Franzen's shot in the closing seconds.

Detroit's Chris Osgood stopped 30 shots.
