Jiri Hudler scored twice, linemate Valtteri Filppula added a goal and two assists, and the Detroit Red Wings hung on to beat the Dallas Stars 5-4 on Tuesday night.
Henrik Zetterberg, the third member of the line, had three assists.
Johan Franzen and Cory Emmerton also connected for the Red Wings, an NHL-best 15-2-1 at home but only 10-11-0 on the road.
Michael Ryder had two goals, Jamie Benn added a goal and two assists, and Loui Eriksson also scored for the Stars.
Dallas is short-handed on defense, missing regulars Sheldon Souray (ankle), Stephane Robidas (foot) and Philip Larsen (concussion-like symptoms), and it showed against the speedy, skilled Wings.
Injuries forced the callup of rookies Jordie Benn, older brother of Jamie Benn, and Brenden Dillon from the Texas Stars of the AHL.
Jordie Benn made his NHL debut, collecting his first assist in the opening period, while Dillon was a healthy scratch.
