GLENDALE, Ariz. - Luke Glen­den­ing broke a tie with a short-handed goal with 3:24 left and the Detroit Red Wings beat the win­less Ari­zona Coyotes 4-2 on Thurs­day night.

Dy­lan Larkin got the as­sist on Glen­den­ing’s goal, his sec­ond of the night, af­ter Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard made a flex­i­ble save at the other end. Howard fin­ished with 33 saves.

Frans Nielsen sent in a long emp­tynet goal with 1:34 to go to seal Detroit’s third vic­tory of the sea­son. The Coyotes have one point through four games.

Martin Frk and Hen­rik Zet­ter­berg also scored for Detroit.

Clay­ton Keller scored twice for Ari­zona, with Max Domi as­sist­ing on both.

Louis Domingue came off the bench to make 21 saves for the Coyotes. Domingue has played in three of the first four games of the sea­son.

Ari­zona had a 5-on-3 power play for 90 sec­onds in the first pe­riod, but the Red Wings sur­vived that stretch and were 3 for 3 on the penalty kill in the first.

Anti Raanta, who gave up three goals in the first 6:15 of the Coyotes’ 5-2 loss at Ve­gas on Tues­day night and was pulled from net, held the Red Wings score­less on nine shots in the first pe­riod. He blocked a wide open at­tempt from Nielsen with 4:19 to go.

Raanta did not start the sec­ond pe­riod, how­ever, due to what was an­nounced as a lower-body in­jury.

Keller stuffed in a re­bound off a shot from close range by Jor­dan Marti­nook at 6:12 of the sec­ond, giv­ing the Coyotes a 1-0 lead and their first power-play goal since the sea­son opener Oct. 5.

The Red Wings tied it at 1 on their fourth power-play goal of the sea­son, scored by Frk on a long slap shot that got past Domingue’s glove side at 11:37 of the sec­ond pe­riod. Mike Green got the as­sist, his fourth on a power play this sea­son.

Frk has three goals in four games, and Green, with two as­sists, has eight on the sea­son.

Keller’s sec­ond goal made it 2-1 with 1:44 to play in the sec­ond. Keller took a pass from Domi for a wrist shot. But Detroit an­swered, with Hen­rik Zet­ter­berg tap­ping the puck be­tween Domingue’s legs af­ter Dy­lan Larkin moved it around the boards be­hind the net.

Zet­ter­berg’s goal, his sec­ond of the sea­son, came with 42 sec­onds to play in the pe­riod.

Ari­zona’s Law­son Crouse and Detroit’s Nick Jensen fought when Jensen went af­ter Crouse af­ter Crouse de­liv­ered a crunch­ing check on Xavier Ouel­let early in the third pe­riod.
