Detroit tips Chicago to end skid at six games



Dominik Kubalik scored the goahead goal with 4:07 remaining Wednesday night, and the Detroit Red Wings snapped a six-game skid with a 4-3 win over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks.

Jake Walman, Dylan Larkin and Lucas Raymond also scored for Detroit. Ville Husso made 39 saves.

Kubalik’s goal was especially satisfying because he played his first three seasons with the Blackhawks. He signed with Detroit as a free agent before this season.

“You always want to beat the old team,” he said. “The team is different, obviously, after a lot of trades. There’s not too many guys left that I know, but you always want to play good against them and score or something.”

Taylor Raddysh scored twice and Joey Anderson also scored for Chicago.

Raddysh scored his first goal of the game on a power play off a pass from Lukas Reichel.

Raddysh’s 16th goal of the season came after Detroit turned the puck over in its own zone. He took a shot from the right circle that beat Husso on the short side. Cole Guttman recorded his first career assist on the play.

Larkin was awarded a penalty shot in the final minute of the period when Blackhawks defenseman Caleb Jones covered the puck in the crease. Larkin tried to beat Stalock with a low shot, but Stalock made a pad save.

Walman scored his seventh goal early in the second to cut Chicago’s lead to 2-1. Walman’s shot deflected off a defender’s stick and over Alex Stalock’s left shoulder.

Larkin tied the game late in the period on a power play. Alex Chiasson set up Larkin’s team-high 24th goal with a nifty betweenthe-legs pass.

Anderson’s third goal gave Chicago a 3-2 advantage at 6:10 of the third. After Jujhar Khaira won a faceoff in the Red Wings’ zone, Anderson wristed a shot from the left side that eluded Husso’s glove.

WILD 4, JETS 2: Marc-andre Fleury made 46 saves, and Minnesota extended its point streak to 11 games with the victory in Winnipeg.

The Wild is 9-0-2 in its past 11 games. Fleury has victories in his past four starts.

Marcus Foligno had a goal and assist and Frederick Gaudreau, Ryan Hartman and Mason Shaw also scored for the Wild (37-21-7). Oskar Sundqvist and Jake Middleton each had two assists.

Logan Stanley and Nino Niederreit­er scored for the Jets (36-26-3), who are 2-7-2 in their past 11 games. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 19 shots.

The victory moves the Wild into a tie with the idle Dallas Stars atop the Central Division. The Jets remain fourth in the division and hold the second Western Conference wild-card spot, three points behind the idle Edmonton Oilers and four points ahead of the idle Calgary Flames.

Flyers’ Deangelo suspended

Philadelph­ia Flyers defenseman Tony Deangelo was suspended two games by the NHL for spearing Tampa Bay’s Corey Perry during a scrum in front of the net.

Deangelo received a major penalty and a game misconduct Tuesday for pushing a stick into Perry’s lower body. The action set off a more intense scrum.

Deangelo said he was trying to give Perry “a little shot.”

“I wasn’t looking for it to go there,” he said. “He tried to slash my stick out of my hands the second beforehand. He talks all game.”

Deangelo will miss games Thursday at Carolina and Saturday at Pittsburgh and forfeit about $54,000 in salary.

SHARKS: San Jose Coach David Quinn was fined $25,000 for his profanity-laced tirade against a referee that led to a game misconduct.

The NHL announced the penalty for “conduct demeaning the officials” by Quinn during Saturday’s 8-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Quinn started yelling at referee Gord Dwyer following a clipping penalty called on San Jose forward Kevin Labanc in the third period. Quinn was given a game misconduct and continued yelling and cursing at Dwyer before finally leaving the bench.
