DETROIT (AP) -- John Madden scored at 4:18 in overtime and the Minnesota Wild snapped the Detroit Red Wings' four-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory on Friday night.

Brent Burns, Cal Clutterbuck and Mikko Koivu also scored for Minnesota. Jose Theodore stopped 41 shots and Nick Schultz finished with two assists.

Patrick Eaves had a goal and an assist and Darren Helm and Johan Franzen also scored for Detroit. Justin Abdelkader had two assists and Jimmy Howard made 23 saves.

Koivu put in a rebound off Schultz's shot with 1:23 left in regulation, tying it at 3, and Madden backhanded in a rebound in the extra session for his fourth goal.

Eaves gave Detroit a 3-2 lead 4:55 into the third. Theodore stopped Eaves' first attempt at the side of the net, but the forward took the puck behind the cage for a wraparound and jammed it in on the other side. Eaves' third goal was upheld after a video review.

Helm's first goal got the Red Wings on the board with just 33 seconds left in the second period. He put Justin Abdelkader's cross-crease pass into the open side of the net.

Clutterbuck gave the Wild a 2-0 lead 1:25 into the second when his shot from the side of the net trickled in off Howard. It was Clutterbuck's seventh goal.

Minnesota killed off a 5-on-3 power play during the middle of the second, and Detroit had an 18-3 shots advantage in the period.

The Wild opened the scoring 8:16 into the game when Burns' screened shot from the top of the left circle found the back of the net for his sixth goal. It came three seconds after Detroit finished killing Henrik Zetterberg's hooking penalty.

NOTES: Detroit LW Drew Miller was a healthy scratch. He has been alternating with fellow fourth liner Eaves in sitting out because the Red Wings have too many forwards who are playing well for one to sit out for a number of games in a row. Miller had a goal and an assist in Wednesday night's 7-3 win over St. Louis.
