Jan. 4, 2014 at 11:48 PM

DALLAS, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Jimmy Howard made 44 saves and Henrik Zetterberg backed him with a pair of goals Saturday in the Detroit Red Wings' 5-1 victory over Dallas.

Howard turned aside 19-of-20 shots in the first period and closed the door the rest of the way as the Red Wings rebounded from a shootout loss to Toronto in Wednesday's NHL Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium.

Drew Miller, Joakim Andersson and Tomas Tatar also scored for Detroit, which snapped an overall two-game skid despite the absence of center Pavel Datsyuk (lower-body injury).

Rich Peverley scored a short-handed goal for Dallas, which fell to the Red Wings for the seventh time in nine meetings.

Dan Ellis was lifted after allowing three goals on 13 shots in the first period.

Kari Lehtonen stopped 12-of-14 the rest of the way.
