Larkin leads Red Wings to 2-1 win over Lightning
DETROIT (AP) — Detroit rookie Dylan Larkin broke a third-period tie and gave the Red Wings a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.
The 19-year-old Larkin skated up the right boards and passed the puck to linemate Justin Abdelkader, who quickly returned it to Larkin.
The rookie then knocked the puck under the arm of goaltender Ben Bishop at 5:54.
Larkin has scored in two straight games.
It was Abdelkader’s first point since the second game of the season.
With one minute remaining in the game, Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman hit the cross bar as the Lightning had the extra attacker with the goaltender pulled.
