Todd Bertuzzi was wide with a shot on Detroit's final try, sending the Islanders to their fifth straight win over the Red Wings.

John Tavares had a goal and an assist.

Poulin finished with 19 saves.

Datsyuk scored twice and Johan Franzen also had a goal as the Wings dropped a sixth straight overall.

Gustavsson stopped 37 shots.
