Fabbris late goal lifts Red Wings past Hurricanes


DETROIT — Robby Fabbri scored with 2:42 remaining in the third period to lift the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-2 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday.

Fabbri scored from the top of the crease off a pass from Filip Zadina five seconds after a power play ended to give Detroit a 3-2 lead, and Dylan Larkin scored his second of the game into an empty net at 18:04 for the 4-2 final.

Bobby Ryan scored in his debut for the Red Wings, who lost to the Hurricanes 3-0 on Thursday. Jonathan Bernier made 29 saves.

Andrei Svechnikov had a goal and an assist, and Petr Mrazek made 17 saves for Carolina.

The Hurricanes nearly took a 1-0 lead at 6:47 of the first period, but Red Wings defenseman Filip Hronek slid across the goal line to block Svechnikov’s shot with Bernier out of position.

Ryan made it 1-0 at 3:44 of the second period, scoring on a one-timer from the left circle after Zadina intercepted a drop pass by Hurricanes defenseman Jake Gardiner.

Vincent Trocheck scored 28 seconds into the third period to tie it 1-1 when he deflected Svechnikov’s initial shot on the power play, but Larkin scored 18 seconds later to make it 2-1 when his backhand pass to the front of the net deflected in off Trocheck’s stick and Brady Skjei‘s skate.

Svechnikov tied it 2-2 at 8:56. He knocked the puck away from Red Wings defenseman Marc Staal and beat Bernier from the slot after receiving a pass from Jordan Martinook.

Hurricanes captain Jordan Staal did not play after being placed on the COVID-19 protocol list.
