WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Henrik Zetterberg backhanded in the deciding goal in the shootout and the Detroit Red Wings came back from a two-goal deficit to beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Thomas Vanek also scored against goalie Connor Hellebuyck in the shootout, and Patrik Laine had Winnipeg’s tally against Petr Mrazek.

Tomas Tatar, Anthony Mantha and Vanek scored in regulation for Detroit, which has at least one point in seven of its last eight games (5-1-2).

The Jets got goals from Andrew Copp, Dustin Byfuglien and Laine, whose 17th of the season tied him for the NHL lead with Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby.
