Red Wings 3, Coyotes 2

The SportsXchange

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Pavel Datsyuk scored his team-leading 11th goal and added an assist, and the Detroit Red Wings rallied to beat the skidding Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 on Monday night.

Detroit's Ian White and Johan Franzen also scored, and Jonas Gustavsson made 29 saves for the Red Wings (17-11-5), who won for the fifth time in six games.

Martin Hanzal and Rob Klinkhammer scored for the Coyotes (13-15-4), who are winless in their past six games (0-5-1).

On Detroit's fourth power play, early in the third period, Niklas Kronwall worked the puck to Henrik Zetterberg, who looped behind the net from left to right. Zetterberg then slid a pass to the front of the net. The puck bounced off defenseman David Schlemko's skate and onto Datsyuk's stick for the deciding goal.

Phoenix's Lauri Korpikoski was awarded a penalty shot with 4:12 left in the game when he was hauled down by Jakub Kindl on a short-handed breakaway, but his attempt was kicked aside by Gustavsson.

White gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead at 4:01 of the first period when he beat Jason LaBarbera on a blast from the point.

Raffi Torres nearly tied the game 40 seconds later when he took a shot that bounced off both the right and left posts before ricocheting away from the crease. However, Hanzal did what Torres could not, taking a pass from Oliver Ekman-Larsson to the left of Gustavsson and backhanding the puck just inside the left post at 7:56 of the period.

Klinkhammer made it 2-1 at 12:17 of the first, skating in from high in the zone to claim a long rebound sitting just right of the net and flipping the puck just under the crossbar.

Franzen tied the game at 2-2 with 38.6 seconds left in the second period on a one-timer from between the circles off a pass from Kronwall.

LaBarbera finished with 32 saves.

NOTES: Detroit has scored a power-play goal in eight straight games. ... Kronwall played in his 500th career game. ... Red Wings center Damien Brunner had been a healthy scratch Sunday against Los Angeles. He played more than 14 minutes Monday. ... Phoenix was without goaltender Mike Smith, who sustained an upper-body injury when he was charged by Vancouver's Alexander Edler. ... Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard was given the night off after stopping 33 shots against the Kings. ... Coyotes right winger David Moss returned to the lineup after missing the previous two games with a lower-body injury. He got an assist on Klinkhammer's goal. ... Phoenix defenseman Zbynek Michalek missed his seventh straight game with a lower-body injury.
