PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Adam Almquist scored two power-play goals in the second period and Tomas Tatar had a goal and assist to lead the Detroit Red Wings past the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Monday night in a preseason game.

Almquist scored at 6:10 and 11:50 with shots from the point to put the Red Wings ahead 3-1.
