Detroit opened the scoring 4:17 into the first period on Larkin’s power-play goal – the fourth straight game in which he has scored.

The Red Wings made it 2-0 when Seider sent a backhand shot from the corner toward the net and it caromed off defenseman Philip Broberg, the post and then Campbell before going in.

Nugent-Hopkins got the Oilers on the scoreboard 1:26 into the second period, but Fabbri restored Detroit’s two-goal edge on the power play at 9:06.

Edmonton made it a one-goal game just over two minutes later as Connor McDavid sent a one-handed pass across the crease to Nugent-Hopkins, who recorded his 26th goal of the season in his 55th game. Nugent-Hopkins’ career best is 28 goals in 82 games in 2018-19.

Maatta made it 4-2 with 3:48 to play in the second.

Draisaitl scored 3:26 into the third period, and Edmonton pulled even a couple of minutes later on Ryan’s goal.
