Detroit Red Wings fall to Dallas 5-2 Tuesday

DALLAS (AP) — Jason Robertson scored twice and Jake Oettinger made 28 saves in his season debut as the Dallas Stars beat the Detroit Red Wings 5-2 on Tuesday night.

Robertson’s wraparound at 3:48 of the third period gave Dallas a 4-2 lead after Detroit scored twice within a span of 5 1/2 minutes in the second period.

His second goal was an empty-netter that glanced off the post after sliding nearly the length of the ice with about two minutes left in third, just after a faceoff win by Luke Glendening — a Michigan native who played his previous eight NHL seasons with the Red Wings.

Filip Zadina and Dylan Larkin scored for the Red Wings, now losers of three of their last four games. Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 25 shots but his three-game winning streak was snapped.

But Larkin, the Red Wings captain, was removed from the game before the start of the third period due to COVID-19 protocol.
