Mantha and Hamonic were also ejected for fighting.

Detroit's final two goals came during a five-minute power play after tempers flared in the last six minutes of the third period.

Detroit Red Wings forward Anthony Mantha is living up to his billing as a fantasy breakout candidate, and he's somehow still there for the taking in more than one-third of Yahoo leagues.

Dylan Larkin scored shorthanded and also had an assist; Andreas Athanasiou scored first and last, and assisted on one of Mantha's goals. Larkin's been the most consistent offensive contributor donning the Winged Wheel and now has 18 points (three goals, 15 assists) through 19 games.

He was guided into the Red Wings bench by a referee, receiving a slash on the leg from Matthew Tkachuk as a he headed for the dressing room.

As the SB Nation site "Winging It in Mowtown" points out, since Witkowski attempted to reenter the ice after being sent off by an official, he may be looking at an automatic 10-game suspension.

He gets a matchup against a Flames team that now surrenders three goals a game to opposing teams, which ranks them in the middle of the pack in the league.
