TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Thomas Greiss made 27 stops to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-1 victory over Tampa Bay for their first road win against the Lightning in nearly six years.

Mark Staal, Valterri Filppula, Michael Rasmussen, Darren Helm and Dylan Larkin all scored for the Red Wings. Luke Glendening and Anthony Mantha each finished with two assists for Detroit, which had lost 17 consecutive games in Tampa.

Victor Hedman scored his seventh goal for the Lightning. Christopher Gibson stopped 12 shots in the loss, his undoing coming when he allowed three goals in a span of 2:53 in the second period.
