Tomas Tatar powers Red Wings past Jets

--

WINNIPEG - Tomas Tatar was just following his coach's advice, and it paid off with a pair of goals Thursday night.

Tatar scored twice and added an assist as the Detroit Red Wings downed the Winnipeg Jets 4-3.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock had told his players to keep shooting the puck at the net after the team lost 4-1 to Montreal on Sunday.

"I guess (Babcock's) right, he's been in the league forever," said Tatar, who had three shots. "He's a great coach.

"We want to score always, but sometimes it doesn't go our way and so you have to play simple and just put the puck on the net. We were more aggressive. We knew we had nothing to lose so we just wanted to force the puck to the net. I'm really happy."

Even though the Wings were down 3-2 after two periods, they outshot the Jets 14-9 in the third, with Justin Abdelkader tying the game and Tatar firing in the winner with his eighth goal of the season.

Tatar scored the winner at 15:10 of the third period when he was sent a pass from Abdelkader at the front of the net and buried a one-timer.

Abdelkader tied the game 3-3 with seven minutes left after he appeared to tip in Brian Lashoff's long shot that Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec might have pushed in.

Johan Franzen scored his sixth of the season for the Wings (10-4-5), who were outshot 31-27.

Dustin Byfuglien, Adam Lowry and Mathieu Perrault scored for the Jets (10-8-3). Pavelec made 23 saves.

Detroit was resting goalie Jimmy Howard and backup Jonas Gustavsson is out because a dislocated shoulder, so Petr Mrazek got to play his 12th career game and first this season. He made 28 saves for the win.

"We were down 3-2, but we were saying that we have to go hard to the net and get some rebound or some greasy goals," Mrazek said. "That last one by Tats was a great pass by Abbie."

Detroit was without centre Pavel Datsyuk (groin) for a second straight game.

The Jets built a 2-0 lead after a scoreless first period.

Byfuglien ended his 14-game goalless drought off a nifty setup by Evander Kane. Kane was at the side of the net and sent a between-the-legs backhand pass that Byfuglien used to score his third goal of the season 2:15 into the second. …
