DETROIT -- Michael Stone's goal with 4:47 left broke a tie and the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena.

Derek Morris and Antoine Vermette each had a goal and an assist and Mikkel Boedker also scored for Phoenix, which evened its record to 2-2. Mike Smith made 28 saves. He was stung on the right arm by Henrik Zetterberg's shot during a power play in the middle of the third period, repeatedly shaking it for the next few minutes.

Stone's goal, a slap shot from the right point that was screened by Martin Hanzal, came just two seconds after a Coyotes' power play ended. The Red Wings Steven Weiss took a hooking penalty deep in the Phoenix zone with 6:49 remaining.

Stone's shot went in off the far goal post.

Vermette added an empty-net goal in the last minute

Joakim Andersson and Jonathan Ericsson scored for Detroit, which lost its second straight to fall to 2-2. Jimmy Howard stopped 35 shots.

The Red Wings scored two goals in 53 seconds early in the second period to take a 2-1 lead.

Andersson put a rebound over Smith 5:07 into the middle period to tie the game at 1, and Ericsson's floater from the right point found its way into the net at the six minute mark.

But Boeddker evened the score again by burying a loose puck after picking it up on the other side of the crease, just 1:04 later.

Morris gave Phoenix a 1-0 lead just 2:21 into the game when he beat Howard with a slap shot from the right point after Antoine Vermette beat Stephen Weiss cleanly on a face-off.
