Kyle Quincey fired in a long slap shot for his first goal of the season, and the Detroit Red Wings went on to beat the Dallas Stars 5-2 on Thursday night.
The drive beat goalie Jussi Rynnas 7:39 into the third period and gave Detroit a 4-2 lead. The Red Wings got back on track after a 4-3 loss to Florida on Tuesday snapped a four-game winning streak.
The third period belonged to the Red Wings, who scored two goals in the frame and held a 9-3 edge in shots.
Darren Helm, who gave Detroit a 1-0 lead in the first, netted his second goal of the game with six minutes 6:53 left to complete the scoring.
Stephen Weiss and Pavel Datsyuk also scored for the Red Wings, and Jimmy Howard made 22 saves. Rynnas stopped 24 shots.
