DETROIT (AP) -- Dylan Larkin scored two goals to lead the Detroit Red Wings to their fifth consecutive win, a 4-2 decision over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.
   Andreas Athanasiou had a goal and an assist and Thomas Vanek         scored for Detroit (5-2-0). Petr Mrazek made 28 saves for the Red Wings, whose last five-game winning streak was Jan. 13-27, 2015.
   Jordan Staal and Victor Rask scored for Carolina while Cam Ward stopped 21 shots.
   An apparent goal by the Hurricanes' Teuvo Teravainen with 3:03 left was waved off because he deflected a shot in with a high stick.
   Athanasiou gave Detroit a 4-2 lead with 2:56 left in the second period on a wrist shot from the right circle. It was Athanasiou's second goal of the season.
   That was after Carolina scored twice in the second to pull within a goal.
