CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The Chicago Blackhawks had two impressive streaks end in stunning fashion.
Chicago had been unbeaten in its last eight games and had not lost in 55 games when leading after the second period (47-0-8).
The Blackhawks also had the best record in the NHL since the return of Theo Fleury, who seemed to put the game out of reach in the third period.
Detroit pulled within 2-1 on Sergei Fedorov's goal less than three minutes into the third, but Fluery responded with 10:17 remaining to give Chicago a 3-1 edge.
But the Red Wings' high-powered offense, which recorded 12 of its 32 shots in the third period, dominated the Blackhawks' defense thereafter.
Hull halved the deficit on the power play with 7:27 remaining and forged a tie with just 17 seconds to go when he deflected defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom's slap shot past Chicago goaltender Jocelyn Thibault.
"I thought we looked a little bit tired in the third," Thibault said. "They just kept coming and coming at us. Even after we scored our third goal, it didn't seem to hurt them a lot."
"We played pretty well in the third period," Woolley said. "We started to generate a lot of offense. They kept cycling and guys just made some great plays."
After Detroit's Curtis Joseph made a spectacular save on Fluery's breakaway in overtime, Hull and Woolley took advantage of a 2-on-1.
Hull drew defenseman Phil Housley to the right circle before passing across the slot to Woolley, who put the puck past Thibault's glove side for his third goal of the season.
"I could see when (Hull) turned, he wasn't going to shoot it," Woolley said. "I know in those situations if (Housley) had played me more (Hull) would've shot. He made a grat pass across."
The Red Wings, who had scored just two goals in their previous nine periods entering the third, improved to 7-1-3 in their last 11 games.
"The difference in the game tonight was tremendous character and leadership to find a way in the third period on the road to get a victory," Detroit coach Dave Lewis said. "The plays that you saw tonight came from inside the player not the outside of the player."
Alexei Zhamnov had three assists as the Blackhawks lost for just the second time in 14 games.
"We're not satisfied with it," Chicago coach Brian Sutter said. "We had the lead and I don't care that they are the Stanley Cup champions. I don't care about getting one point or not. You can put it in the losing column."
"I honestly think they just got lucky," Blackhawks right wing Steve Sullivan said. "We had them on the ropes with 11 minutes to play. Then they got one goal then they got some momentum and it seemed like we were just trying to hold on."
After a scoreless first period, Chicago's Kyle Calder scored on the power play at the 2:32 mark of the second. Calder has scored in three straight games after managing just seven goals in his first 37.
Defenseman Steve Poapst gave the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead with his first goal of the season less at 7:23. He was left unchecked between the circles and one-timed pass from Zhamnov past a helpless Joseph.
Chicago's collapse began when defenseman Alexander Karpovtsev misplayed a puck in his own zone and whiffed on a pass. Fedorov controlled the puck and fired a slap shot past Thibault, who was taken by surprise.
Fluery got lucky on his goal less than seven minutes later as his pass bounced of the skate of Kirk Maltby's and between Joseph's pads for a 3-1 edge.
