Drew Miller scored with 8:25 left and the Detroit Red Wings rallied from three goals down to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4 on Saturday night, snapping a six-game losing streak.
Carolina led 4-1 until Henrik Zetterberg cut the Red Wings' deficit to two goals with 3:02 left in the second period.
Detroit avoided its first seven-game losing streak since 1991.
The Hurricanes have lost two straight after winning four in a row, hurting their slim chances of getting into the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Zetterberg scored twice, and Jiri Hudler netted the tying goal midway through the third period.
Third-string goaltender Ty Conklin made 20 saves for the Red Wings. Carolina's Cam Ward stopped 45 shots.
Detroit's banged-up team got a boost by the return of defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom. He had missed 11 games with a bone bruise on his right ankle. The Red Wings scratched goalie Jimmy Howard, centers Johan Franzen and Darren Helm, and defenseman Jonathan Ericsson because of injuries.
