Gustav Nyquist and Riley Sheahan each added a power-play goal as
the Red Wings broke the game open with three second-period tallies
and had to survive a late comeback. Jimmy Howard turned aside 23
shots as Detroit won for the third time in four games.
Captain Erik Karlsson scored one goal and set up Kyle Turris'
power-play tally for Ottawa, which lost for the 10th time in 15
games (5-6-4). Chris Neil scored with 35 seconds in regulation while
Craig Anderson made 39 saves for the Senators.
Turris opened the scoring on a 5-on-3 at 5:19 of the first, blasting
a one-timer from the top of the left circle past Howard. Nyquist
answered with his team-high 10th goal 11 1/2 minutes later, knocking
home a rebound of captain Henrik Zetterberg's blast.
Sheahan buried a long rebound from the right faceoff dot at 2:23
before Weiss, playing for the first time since Oct. 18, connected
twice in a span of 4:18. Weiss skated in and punched a loose puck
past Anderson at 13:34 before sliding a backhand rebound in the left
corner of the net with 2:08 left in the period, enabling Detroit to
withstand third-period tallies by Karlsson and Neil.
