Tyler Bertuzzi’s goal 15 seconds into overtime lifted the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. The goal wasn’t an intentional shot. The shot came from Dylan Larkin. The puck bounced off the pad of Blue Jackets’ goalie Elvis Merzlikins, then caromed off Bertuzzi, and into the net. Anthony Mantha and Bobby Ryan scored Detroit’s earlier goals. Jonathan Bernier made 22 saves.
