DETROIT (AP) -- Cory Emmerton had two goals and an assist, and Drew Miller scored twice in the Detroit Red Wings' 8-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. Niklas Kronwall added a goal and two assists, and Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Brad Stuart also scored for Detroit. Dan Cleary had three assists, and Darren Helm and Tomas Holmstrom each had two. Jimmy Howard made 27 saves. Davis Drewiske and Jarret Stoll scored for Los Angeles, which lost for the sixth time in seven games amid reports that Darryl Sutter will become head coach in the upcoming week. Justin Williams and Dustin Penner had two assists each. Jonathan Quick stopped four shots before being replaced less than halfway into the first period. Jonathan Bernier took over and made 15 saves. The Kings, last in the NHL in goals-per game, appear close to having their third coach of the season. A team spokesman had no comment, and interim coach John Stevens -- who replaced the fired Terry Murray -- was behind the bench on Saturday night. Detroit scored twice within 15 seconds for a 2-0 lead two minutes in. Miller put in a rebound at 1:45, and Emmerton tipped in Jonathan Ericsson's shot at 2:00. Kronwall's slap shot from the top of the right circle beat Quick at 8:32 and sent the goalie to the bench. Drewiske's second goal put Los Angeles on the board with 2:45 left in the first. Emmerton's second goal restored the Red Wings' three-goal lead with 1:25 remaining in the first period. He put a one-timed shot past Bernier from the inside edge of the left circle for his third this season. Stoll cut the Kings' deficit to 4-2 with 8:57 left in the second period when he chipped in a rebound for his third goal. Zetterberg's eighth goal came with 8 minutes left in the middle period, and Datsyuk netted his 10th with 22 seconds left in the second. Miller added his second of the game and fifth of the season 7:34 into the third period, and Stuart scored a power-play goal with 8:42 remaining. NOTES: Fourteen Red Wings players had at least one point... Los Angeles has four players from Michigan or the Detroit area: Defenseman Jack Johnson is from Ann Arbor, defenseman Matt Greene is from Grand Ledge, defenseman Alec Martinez is from the Detroit suburb of Rochester, and enforcer Kevin Westgarth is a native of Amherstburg, Ontario, which is just across the Detroit River.
