DETROIT - Drew Stafford scored the only shootout goal Saturday night to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.
His wrister got past Detroit's Jimmy Howard in the fourth round of the tiebreaker and Michael Hutchinson stopped Stephen Weiss on the ensuing attempt to seal the win.
Howard, who missed 11 games with a partially torn groin muscle, made 34 saves for Detroit in his first start since Jan. 6. The Jets' Hutchinson stopped 25.
Andrew Ladd also had a regulation goal for Winnipeg, which improved to 14-6-4 against Eastern Conference teams this season. Pavel Datsyuk had two goals for Detroit.
The loss ended Detroit's six-game home winning streak.
