DETROIT - Niklas Kronwall and Gustav Nyquist scored 18 seconds apart in the first period and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Arizona Coyotes 5-1 Thursday night to earn at least one point in a ninth straight game.

Justin Abdelkader, Danny DeKeyser and Darren Helm also scored for Detroit, which played five straight overtime games before opening a 3-0 lead in the first period and shutting down the Coyotes.

Detroit lost two players to injuries. Teemu Pulkkinen left with an upper-body injury after being taken into the boards by Martin Hanzal at 6:19 of the first period. About six minutes later, Drew Miller took a shoulder to the chin by Klas Dahlbeck. Miller was wobbly when skating off and he did not return.

Jordan Martinook scored for the Coyotes, who had a goal overturned just 1:21 into the game.

Dahlbeck's shot beat Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard. But the on-ice call was reversed because it was determined that Coyotes defenceman Connor Murphy was offside on the play.
