DETROIT -- Johan Franzen had two goals and two assists, Gustav Nyquist a goal and three assists and David Legwand a goal and two assists in the Detroit Red Wings' 7-4 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

Brendan Smith, Kyle Quincey and Drew Miller also scored for Detroit. Jonas Gustavsson made 21 saves.

Adam Henrique had two goals and Patrik Elias and Jaromir Jagr also scored for New Jersey. Cory Schneider, who gave up seven goals for the first time in his career, stopped 25 shots.

The Red Wings led 5-3 after a wild second period in which seven goals were scored.

Franzen gave Detroit a 2-0 lead when Nyquist's shot went in off Franzen's glove. But New Jersey scored three goals in 2:41 to take the lead.

Elias' short-handed goal put the Devils on the board, Jagr got his 20th goal of the season and 701st of his career, and Henrique got his 20th.

Then the Red Wings got three goals in 3:01.

Franzen scored his second of the game and 15th of the season on the power play. Nyquist picked up his 16th goal and Quincey gave Detroit a two-goal lead with his fourth goal.

Legwand, acquired at Wednesday's trade deadline from Nashville, got his first goal as a Red Wing in the third period.

Henrique got his second goal of the night with 1:18 left.

Smith opened the scoring in the first period. He came straight off the bench and sent a one-time slap shot from just inside the blue line past Schneider. It was Smith's third goal.
