Holmstrom scores twice, Red Wings beat Coyotes 4-1

Tomas Holmstrom deflected two of Nicklas Lidstrom's shots into the net for his 14th and 15th goals to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-1 on Saturday night. Pavel Datsyuk added a power-play goal, and Darren Helm had an empty-netter for the Red Wings, who opened a five-game trip with their second straight win. The Coyotes had a two-man advantage when Matthew Lombardi scored their lone goal. Phoenix lost at home in regulation for the first time since Nov. 16, a span of 12 games, in front of a crowd announced as a sellout of 17,125. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press.
