Calvert took a pass from Fedor Tyutin deep in the defensive zone and chipped the puck along the right boards, while twice fighting off defenders.

He then went unimpeded to the right hash, before whipping the puck high over the glove side of goalie Cory Schneider.

Red Wings 3, Oilers 0

In Detroit, Michigan, Jimmy Howard made 22 saves, while Jakub Kindl and Cory Emmerton scored in the second period to lift the Detroit Red Wings over the Edmonton Oilers 3-0.

Justin Abdelkader’s empty-net goal put the game out of reach.

Howard made 36 saves in a win on Tuesday against Colorado, but coach Mike Babcock was not all that impressed with his team’s overall performance that night.

The Red Wings were sharper defensively against Edmonton and took control in the second period, when they outshot the Oilers 15-7.

Detroit are 10-0-1 in their past 11 regular-season games against Edmonton.

In other NHL play, it was:

‧ Canadiens 4, Hurricanes 2

‧ Jets 2, Lightning 1

‧ Blues 6, Coyotes 3

‧ Stars 5, Kings 2
