Tampa Bay also got goals from Steven Stamkos, Vincent Lecavalier, Nate Thompson, Teddy Purcell, Ryan Malone and Benoit Pouliot. Stamkos and Lecavalier both added two assists.

The Lightning, 6-1-0 this season, has scored five or more goals in four consecutive games.

"You just try to ride the wave," Stamkos said. "You know it probably can't last forever. ... It's enjoyable, it's fun to come to the rink when you're winning and playing well."

Stamkos has five goals and 14 points during a season-opening seven-game point streak.

Red Wings 5, Blues 3: Henrik Zetterberg scored three goals, and his second assist of the game set up Pavel Datsyuk's tiebreaking goal at 9:38 of third period to help host Detroit beat St. Louis.

Zetterberg, who tied a career high with five points, scored the first two goals and set up Jonathan Ericsson's tying goal early in the third period.

"I hear a lot about the things we don't have, but I don't know how many teams have Pav and Z," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "And, that's a pretty good starting point for me.

Detroit's Jimmy Howard made 23 saves for his 114th victory, tying Dominik Hasek for seventh place on the team's career list.
