DETROIT (AP) – Sam Gagner scored three goals, ending a 17-game drought that lasted nearly a year, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Nashville Predators 5-2.
Luke Glendening and Adam Erne also scored for Detroit, which set a season high for goals.
Jonathan Bernier made 37 saves, improving to 11-5-0 in 18 career games against Nashville.

Gagner snapped a 2-all tie at 9:58 of the third period. He spun into the right circle and fired the puck, which banked off goaltender Pekka Rinne’s right skate and into the net.
