DETROIT - Pavel Datsyuk and Gustav Nyquist each scored twice to lead the Detroit Red Wings over the Los Angeles Kings 5-2 on Friday night.

Nyquist had a pair of power-play goals, and Datsyuk and Tomas Tatar also scored in a four-goal first period to help the Red Wings win their third straight at Joe Louis Arena.

Jimmy Howard made 28 saves ? one on Dustin Brown's penalty shot ? for his fifth victory of the season as the Red Wings outshot the Kings 35-30 and kept the Stanley Cup champions winless on the road.

Alec Martinez flicked a rebound past Howard midway through the second period to put the Kings on the board, and Tyler Toffoli added a short-handed goal early in the third period.

Los Angeles had a chance to make it a one-goal game when Brown was awarded a penalty shot 3 minutes into the third, but Howard made a pad save to maintain the two-goal cushion.
