The NHL-leading Detroit Red Wings blew a chance to match the longest winning streak in their storied history.

They did it against the lowly Los Angeles Kings, who entered the game with the fewest points in the league, no less.

Brad Stuart scored the go-ahead goal at 6:15 of the third period and Los Angeles rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat Detroit 5-3 on Thursday night.

The Red Wings had a chance to win their ninth straight game, equaling a franchise record. They seemed to be set up to do it when Henrik Zetterberg scored his second goal to put them ahead 3-1 at 13:05 of the second.

But Los Angeles scored on four of its first eight shots in the third against Chris Osgood, who started the game with an NHL-best 1.84 goals-against average.

Osgood finished with 20 saves and matched a season high by allowing five goals.
