Dylan Larkin beauty on the breakaway and Petr Mrazek's 22 saves were enough for the Detroit Red Wings to defeat the New Jersey Devils.

It was Mrazek's 2nd shutout of the season and his 8th consecutive appearance.

Larkin's highlight reel goal came at 9:20 of the first period:

"We kind of crossed in our own zone and there wasn't much room for that pass to land," Larkin said. "I just flew. I got my head up quick. I saw he was out pretty far," the 19-year-old said. "He bit on the move, so I got pretty lucky there. It happened so fast, and it turned out to be a big goal."

The Wings were sound defensively allowing 10 shots in the last two periods combined to the Devils. Goaltender Petr Mrazek credited his team for the way they played away from the puck:

"The third period was probably the best period we played," Mrazek said. "We didn't give them many chances or good looks. We did a great job stick-on-stick, body on body. We didn't give many opportunities to score a goal."

The Wings have now won the first two games of their six game road trip, after losing three straight games.
