DETROIT (AP) — Robby Fabbri scored the winning goal in a shootout to lift the Detroit Red Wings over Tampa Bay 5-4 on Sunday, snapping the team’s 16-game losing streak against the Lightning in the regular season.

Fabbri opened the scoring in a similar fashion, beating goalie Curtis McElhinney on a breakaway in the first period as well.

Anthony Mantha had a goal and three assists for the Red Wings, who won despite blowing a 4-2 lead in the third period.

Brayden Point scored two goals for the Lightning, who beat NHL-leading Boston on Saturday before losing to a Detroit team with the league’s worst record.
