Adam Erne scored in the seventh round of the shootout as the Detroit Red Wings beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4 on Saturday night.

Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha, Valtteri Filppula and Erne had goals in regulation for Detroit. Larkin also scored in the shootout. Thomas Greiss finished with 30 saves.

Petr Mrazek stopped 25 shots for the Hurricanes, who had a three-game winning streak end.

Erne scored with 6:20 remaining in regulation to put Detroit up 4-3. Carolina responded with Aho’s goal at the 4-minute mark to tie it.

The Hurricanes nearly tied it it earlier on Nino Niederreiter’s redirection with 5:13 to play, but a video review wiped out the tally because of goalie interference.

The Red Wings were coming off their fourth loss by five goals or more with Thursday night’s 7-1 decision against visiting Nashville.

Brock McGinn remained out for the Hurricanes, missing his third consecutive game with an upper-body injury.

IT HAD BEEN A WHILE

Greiss hadn’t allowed three goals in any of his last three games. He gave up three in the first 30 minutes in this one.
