NHL: Winnipeg 4, Detroit 2

Nov. 4, 2013 at 11:09 PM   |   Comments

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Matt Halischuk scored the go-ahead goal in the third period Monday and the Winnipeg Jets snapped a three-game skid with a 4-2 win over Detroit.

The game was tied 2-2 early in the final period when Michael Frolik got control of the puck behind the Detroit net and sent a pass into the slot, where Halischuk blasted it home for his first goal as a Jet.

Frolik, Bryan Little and Andrew Ladd each notched a goal and an assist for Winnipeg, which won for only the second time in eight games.

Al Montoya stopped 26-of-28 shots to earn the victory.

Henrik Zetterberg and Danny DeKeyser each scored for the Red Wings, whose three-game winning streak was snapped in their first visit to Winnipeg since it re-entered the NHL in 2011.

Detroit last played in the Canadian city in 1996, before the then-Jets moved to Phoenix.

Jimmy Howard made 43 saves for the Wings.
