DETROIT (AP) — Filip Zadina scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:52 left in the third period, sending the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

The Red Wings had lost two in a row and 20 of their last 23, giving them the NHL’s worst record by a wide margin.

Montreal has dropped seven straight games.
