Detroit enhances to 3-0 versus Montreal:

Frans Nielsen scored twice in Detroit's 4-3 win over the Canadiens. 1:24

Montreal coach Claude Julien, meanwhile, declined to address a concern about losing all three games to Detroit.

"I'm simply speaking about tonight's video game," Julien stated.

The Red Wings had lost two in a row and 20 of their last 23, providing the NHL's worst record by a large margin.

Montreal has actually dropped seven straight video games.

"When you get tired of losing enough, you throw down the gauntlet," Julien said. "And ideally, we're there."

Frans Nielsen got his second objective of the game with 8:41 remaining to pull the Red Wings into a 3-all tie. Earlier in the duration, Victor Mete was credited with a go-ahead goal that went off Detroit defenceman Filip Hronek's skate.

Artturi Lehkonen had a short-handed objective in the first duration off Hronek's turnover and Nick Suzuki scored on a power play in the second to provide the Canadiens a two-goal lead they couldn't hold.

Nielsen scored midway through the second and Robby Fabbri's wrist shot from the slot early in the 3rd tied it at 2.
