DETROIT (AP) — Brady Skjei scored the only goal and Pyotr Kochetkov made 27 saves in the Carolina Hurricanes’ 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings 1-0 Tuesday night in the 100th career meeting between the teams.

Carolina improved to 5-0-1 on its current road swing, tying a record for most wins and setting a record for points on the road — passing Hartford’s 10-point trip from Jan. 30-Feb. 11, 1996. The Hurricanes are now 6-0-4 in their last 10 road games, two games shy of the team record 12-game road point streak from 2004.

Detroit captain Dylan Larkin blocked a shot earlier in the game, and did not return for the third period.

Kochetkov was coming off a 3-0 shutout Saturday against the New York Islanders and now increased his franchise record to three shutouts in his first 15 career games, all away from home.

Skjei scored on a power play at 17:20 of the first period, extending his point streak to four games.

Ville Husso made 26 saves for the Red Wings, who fell to 0-2 when wearing their Reverse Retro jerseys.


The Red Wings recalled D Steven Kampfer from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and placed D Robert Hägg on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 8.


Hurricanes: Host Seattle on Thursday night.

Red Wings: Play at Minnesota on Wednesday night.
