DETROIT (AP) — Pius Suter and Tyler Bertuzzi each had a goal and an assist, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Vegas Golden Knights 5-2 Sunday night.

Robby Fabbri, Lucas Raymond and Vladislav Namestnikov also scored for the Red Wings. Sam Gagnerm, Filip Hronek and Nick Leddy each had two assists, and Thomas Greiss stopped 38 shots.

Nicolas Roy had a goal and an assist, and Jonathan Marchessault also scored for the Golden Knights. Laurent Brossoit finished with 25 saves.

After Roy gave Vegas the lead 3:48 into the game with his second of the season, Detroit scored the next four goals to take control.

Raymond tied it with the first of the Red Wings' two power-play goals, getting a pass from Bertuzzi and beating Brossoit from the left circle for his sixth at 8:17. The 19-year-old now has 14 points to lead all NHL rookies.

With Detroit on the man-advantage again, Fabbri scored from the right circle for his third with 9:47 remaining in the first.

The Red Wings finished 2 for 4 on the power play and went 3 for 3 on the penalty-kill.

Suter made it 3-1 on a rebound of a shot by Hronek with 1:32 to go in the opening period.

Namestnikov gave the Red Wings a three-goal lead, scoring his fifth from a tight angle with 9:21 left in the second.

Marchessault pulled Vegas to 4-2 with his sixth at 4:25 of the third, but Bertuzzi sealed it with an empty-netter with 10 seconds left for his team-leading ninth.

ROSTER MOVE

Detroit on Sunday assigned center Joe Veleno, 21, to Grand Rapids of the AHL, and activated defenseman Gustav Lindstrom from injured reserve. Veleno, the Red Wings’ first-round pick in 2018 had one goal and one assist in four games since being recalled Oct. 30 from Grand Rapids.
