Brendan Shanahan, playing in his 1,300th career NHL game, had a goal and four assists and Pavel Datsyuk two goals and an assist for the Red Wings, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

The Thrashers had a 6-2 lead going into the last period, but Detroit scored four goals in less than nine minutes to tie the game.
