Game Recap: TB 2 - Det 4

Make it 6 straight. Putting Denis in net made no difference. We just saw the difference between an average team and an elite team.

Here's the recap from the AP:

(AP) -- The Detroit Red Wings played a game of keep away.

And while they had the puck, Jiri Hudler had a goal and an assist to help Detroit beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 on Thursday night.

Pavel Datsyuk, Tomas Kopecky and Dan Cleary also scored, and Chris Osgood made 21 saves for the NHL-leading Red Wings.

Brad Richards and Mathieu Darche scored for Tampa Bay, which lost its sixth straight. Marc Denis stopped 35 shots.

"This is a good team. Puck possession-wise, they killed us," Tampa Bay's Martin St. Louis said. "It's a tough way to play when you don't have the puck against a good team like that."
