The Red Wings had lost 11 straight shootouts, six this season.

Tomas Tatar scored for Detroit with 6:16 left in regulation to tie it at 4.

Pavel Datsyuk, Joakim Andersson and Tomas Jurco had first-period goals for the Red Wings.

David Clarkson, Dion Phaneuf, Joffrey Lupul and Cody Franson scored for Toronto. The Maple Leafs have lost six of their last eight games.

The teams will meet again in the Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor on Jan. 1.

Toronto starter James Reimer was pulled after giving up three goals on 12 shots in the first period. Jonathan Bernier made 25 saves in relief.

Former Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson gave up four goals on 23 shots, then stopped James van Riemsdyk, Lupul and Mason Raymond in the shootout. It was Gustavsson's third straight start as his work load has increased with starter Jimmy Howard injured.

Datsyuk also scored in the shootout for Detroit.

NOTES - The Red Wings were playing without the injured Howard (knee), captain Henrik Zetterberg (back), center Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) and forwards Gustav Nyquist (groin), Johan Franzen (concussion) and Justin Abdelkader (concussion). They got defenseman Danny DeKeyser back after he missed 15 games with a shoulder injury. ... Defensemen Mark Fraser and Paul Ranger and forward Frazer McLaren were healthy scratches for the Leafs.
