Larkin leads Red Wings to 2-1 win over Lightning

   DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit rookie Dylan Larkin broke a third-period tie and gave the Red Wings a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.
 
   The 19-year-old Larkin skated up the right boards and passed the puck to linemate Justin Abdelkader, who quickly returned it to Larkin.
 
   The rookie then knocked the puck under the arm of goaltender Ben Bishop at 5:54. 
 
   Larkin has scored in two straight games.
 
   It was Abdelkader's first point since the second game of the season.
 
   With one minute remaining in the game, Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman hit the cross bar as the Lightning had the extra attacker with the goaltender pulled.
 
   At 2:02 of the second period, Riley Sheahan gloved a puck out of midair, pushed it to his stick, then beat Bishop on his glove side for the first goal of the game.
 
   Later in the second, the Lightning had a 5-on-3 advantage and Nikita Kucherov buried a rebound to tie the game.
 
   Detroit's Jimmy Howard had 29 saves and Bishop made 27.
 
   The teams met on Oct. 13, a 3-1 Detroit victory. They face each other twice more times, both in Tampa.
 
   They met in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs last season, a series the Lightning won in seven games.
