Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Rookie Nathan MacKinnon set up Andre Benoit for the game-winning goal with 31.4 seconds left in overtime as the Colorado Avalanche edged Detroit, 3-2, on a night former defenseman Nicklas Lindstrom was immortalized by the Red Wings.

Benoit was alone in the left circle and one-timed MacKinnon's pass from the right side of the net high over Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard.

The assist gave MacKinnon a point in 13 consecutive games, passing Wayne Gretzky for the longest point streak by an 18-year-old. Gretzky went 12 straight games with a point from Dec. 9, 1979-Jan. 5, 1980.

Matt Duchene had a goal and assisted on P.A. Parenteau's tying goal in the third period for Colorado, which has won four games in a row and snapped a four-game losing streak to the Red Wings.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned away 35 Detroit shots.

Niklas Kronwall and Tomas Jurco scored for Detroit, which lost its second straight game on the night Lindstrom's No. 5 was raised to the rafters during a lavish pre-game ceremony.

Howard stopped 22 shots.
