Antti Niemi made 24 saves to beat the Red Wings for the fourth straight time with just three goals allowed in that span. "We know its going to be a good competitive game against these guys," said captain Joe Thornton, who had two assists to give him a league-leading 45.

Boyle added to the lead on a power play when he beat Howard with a wrist shot from the circle that made it 4-1. The game got testy in the third period, starting with a fight between San Joses Tyler Kennedy and Kyle Quincey. There was another scrum that ended with Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi throwing his helmet at Tommy Wingels and then a later one between San Joses Scott Hannan and Dan Cleary.

"I saw the one guy without a stick and looked up to try and pass," Tatar said. "When no one came over to help I choose to take it. The puck was following me tonight. Its too bad I only scored one goal. I had plenty of other opportunities."
