WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Patrik Laine scored his 32rd and 33rd goals of the season to help the Winnipeg Jets beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 on Friday night.
Dustin Byfuglien and Ben Chiarot also scored and Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves for his 33rd victory of the season. Winnipeg has won six of its last eight games to improve to 38-17-9.
Niklas Kronwall, Anthony Mantha and Trevor Daley scored for Detroit, and Jimmy Howard stopped 38 shots.
Kronwall opened the scoring midway through the first period on Detroit's only power play.
Winnipeg responded with two goals in a 26-second span to take the lead.
Just 38 seconds after Kronwall's goal, Laine scored his first with a wrist shot following a Detroit turnover. Chiarot added his first goal of the season with a soaring shot from the perimeter.
Byfuglien's chip-in put Winnipeg up 4-2, but Detroit responded with Mantha's 21st of the season and Daley's eighth. Laine broke the tie midway through the second with a quick wrister.
