UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Daniel Alfredsson had two goals and an assist, Darren Helm had two goals and Jimmy Howard made 29 saves and the Detroit Red Wings dominated the Islanders 5-0 on Friday for their first regulation victory against New York in a decade.

Detroit won its third in a row as the reeling Islanders lost their fifth straight.

Since beating Boston 3-1 on home on Nov. 2, the Islanders are 2-10.

New York came into the game with a 6-0-1 mark against Detroit in its past seven meetings. The Red Wings hadn't beaten the Islanders in regulation since November 2003.

Helm scored his sixth of the season at 7:09 of the first. He took a pass from Alfredsson at the top of the left circle, then skated in and slid a backhand past a flailing Kevin Poulin, making his fifth straight start for the Islanders.
