    Nedeljkovic carries Red Wings to 4-2 victory over St. Louis


    Detroit — The turkey is going to take a taste a little better for the Red Wings.

    In the traditional Thanksgiving Eve game Wednesday at Little Caesars Arena, the Wings sent a festive crowd home happy with a 4-2 victory.

    Adam Erne broke a 2-2 tie with his third goal, flinging a shot on net that caught the top corner over Blues goalie Ville Husso. Robby Fabbri clinched it with an empty-net goal against his former team. Goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic preserved the lead with some timely saves.

    Detroit Red Wings center Dylan Larkin (71) celebrates his goal against the St. Louis Blues in the second period on Wednesday in Detroit.

    Lucas Raymond and Dylan Larkin added Wings goals, while Nedeljkovic made 35 saves. He was sensational in the third period. The Wings moved back to .500 (9-9-3) on the season.

    Nedeljkovic preserved the 3-2 lead with a diving, sprawling save on a rebound by the Blues’ Marco Scandella that got the LCA crowd roaring, then keyed killing two Blues power plays midway in the third period.

    BOX SCORE: Red Wings 4, Blues 2

    David Perron tied it 2-2 for St. Louis (10-7-2) with his seventh goal, at 1:11 of the third period, on a bad angle goal that found a hole between the post and Nedeljkovic.
