Power play carries Red Wings past Penguins

PITTSBURGH — Adam Almquist scored two power-play goals in the second period and Tomas Tatar had a goal and assist to lead the Detroit Red Wings past the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Monday night in a preseason game.

Paval Datsyuk also scored for Detroit, netting a second-period, unassisted goal.

Almquist scored at 6:10 and 11:50 with shots from the point to put the Red Wings ahead 3-1.

Brandon Sutter netted the lone Pittsburgh goal at 1:05 of the second, to get the Penguins even at 1.

Tatar opened the scoring when he took a failed wraparound attempt and tucked the puck under the crossbar at 12:56 of the first.

Both starting goalies worked two periods. Tomas Vokoun allowed four goals on 15 shots for the Penguins. Detroit’s Jimmy Howard made 13 saves.
