Recap: Buffalo vs. Detroit

Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Petr Mrazek stopped 25 shots and the Detroit Red Wings walked away with a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar and Darren Helm all scored for the Red Wings, who have won three of their last four. Kyle Quincey posted two assists.

"I think we played a great game today," said Mrazek. "Our penalty kill was really solid, and that's been getting a lot better lately."

Mike Weber scored the only goal of the game for the Sabres, who have lost their last eight games. Michal Neuvirth gave up all three goals on 30 shots.

"You have to play hard every night and play the right way," said Weber. "We've shown at times during the season that we can skate and play with any team out there."

In a pregame ceremony, the Sabres retired the number 39 of former goaltender Dominik Hasek.

Darren Helm scored near the midway mark of the first period when he skated down the right wing and used a heavy wrister from the circle to beat Neuvirth to the far side for the short-handed marker.

Detroit grabbed a 2-0 lead at 7:34 of the second on the power play. Pavel Datsyuk snapped a one-timer from the right point that hit off Justin Abdelkader in front. Nyquist was there to backhand the rebound for his 16th of the season.

Buffalo got on the board six minutes later off a crisp rush play. Drew Stafford brought the puck in down the left wing and sent it over to the right for Brian Flynn, who sent it back to his left where a trailing Weber wristed it in for his first of the season.

The Red Wings, though, got it back less than two minutes later as Quincey's right point shot was stopped, and Tatar was in front to slip a backhand under the pads of Neuvirth.
