Florida’s Willie Mitchell earned four minutes in the penalty box early in the first period after roughing and high-sticking Darren Helm in front of the Panthers’ net. Tatar made the Panthers pay when he tapped Datsyuk’s wrister past Luongo.
Hayes evened the score late in the first period and Trocheck and Ekblad added third-period goals to give the Panthers a 4-1 lead.
Both teams had to cancel their morning skates after a massive power outage Tuesday morning shut down several public buildings, including Joe Louis Arena, in the city’s downtown. Power was restored to most of the affected buildings by nightfall and the game began as scheduled.
The Red Wings had a late start in Sunday’s 5-3 win over Vancouver because of a power failure seconds into the game. The two outages were not related.
Notes: Hockey Hall of Famer and Detroit legend Gordie Howe was placed in intensive care at a Lubbock, Texas, hospital after suffering what his family called a major stroke Monday night. The 86-year-old has suffered three strokes since late October. . Florida forward Aleksander Barkov was scratched with an upper-body injury. . Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader missed the game with a left shoulder injury he suffered during Sunday’s win over Vancouver.
