DETROIT (AP) — Danny DeKeyser and Henrik Zetterberg scored early in the first and third periods to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Ottawa Senators and spoil Dion Phaneuf’s debut with his new team with a 3-1 win Wednesday night.

Petr Mrazek stopped 22 shots and his bid for a second straight shutout ended with 2:24 left when Zach Smith scored.

Darren Helm restored Detroit’s two-goal lead with an empty-net goal about a minute later.

Phaneuf got off to a rough start. He skated backward, swiveled his hips and fell to the ice early on one of his first shifts as the veteran defenseman failed to keep up with Gustav Nyquist.

Craig Anderson backed up his new teammate by stopping Nyquist on the sequence for one of his 27 saves.
