The Detroit Red Wings couldn't take advantage of their power play advantage all night, but were still able to skate past the Edmonton Oilers, 3-0.
The Red Wings came up empty on five power play opportunities, but were able to score a goal in each period while the sides were even. Left winger Drew Miller found the net for the first time this season midway through the first period converting a pass from Patrick Eaves into the goal that would end up being all Detroit would need to win game.
The second period goal came courtesy of defensemen Niklas Kronwell with Jiri Hudler and Justin Abdelkader assisting on the play. Valtteri Filppula put the game out of reach for good with his third period goal, the third on the season for Filppula, as Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen picked up assists.
The win was the third in a row for Detroit as they try to keep pace in the Central Division with Pacific Division leader Dallas on the schedule Saturday night.
