TORONTO -- Nazem Kadri scored with 7:26 left in regulation, helping the Toronto Maple Leafs extend their club-record home winning streak to 13 games with a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.
The Red Wings went ahead 3-2 at 4:58 of the third period when Nielsen snapped his 15th short-side over Andersen's shoulder and off the camera inside the Toronto net from a tight angle. The play was initially waved off for a goalie interference charge against Detroit's Justin Abdelkader, but was overturned after a coach's challenge.
After Kadri put Toronto ahead, Andersen had a nervous moment with 3:36 to go when Gustav Nyquist's shot from outside the blue line went off his glove and landed in the crease before he covered up.
Down 1-0 after the first, the Red Wings got even at 4:32 of the second when the speedy Larkin took a stretch pass from Anthony Mantha, who had knocked down Roman Polak's point shot and raced in alone before beating Andersen between his arm and his body for his 12th.
Howard then robbed Andreas Johnsson with a desperation glove save off the rush before the Red Wings went in front when Bertuzzi tipped home his third at 9:37.
Nielsen nearly made it 3-1 a couple minutes later, but Andersen was there to make the stop from in tight.
Despite being outshot 17-4 in the period to that point, the Leafs tied it at 14:19 when Brown scored his 14th -- and first in 15 games -- on a tip off the post and in past Howard.
Detroit survived a 36-second 5-on-3 power play by Toronto midway through the first, but the Leafs eventually took the lead with 5:30 remaining in the period. Tyler Bozak fished out a loose puck in front before firing a no-look pass to Kapanen, who scored his seventh, and third in the last seven games.
Toronto's James van Riemsdyk assisted on Kapanen's goal to give him 11 points in his last six games with eight goals and three assists. ... Matthews, who returned to the lineup Thursday and was playing at home for the first time since suffering a shoulder injury Feb. 22, had a great chance in the opening minutes that Howard turned aside. ... Matthews missed 10 games before scoring in Toronto's 5-2 victory in Nashville on Thursday. ... The Leafs' last home loss was Jan. 22 against Colorado.
Red Wings: at Montreal on Monday night.
Maple Leafs: host Buffalo on Monday night.
