Those power play concerns the Red Wings had early this season aren't there anymore.

And that's a big reason the Red Wings are winning these days.

A pair of power-play goals Monday led the Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes, the Wings' third consecutive victory on this four-game road trip.

The Red Wings conclude the trip Thursday in San Jose, trying to extend what's become a five-game road winning streak overall.

"It's all about getting two points each night and we've been able to grind some out," said defenseman Niklas Kronwall, who had two assists. "Right now we're shooting the puck (on the power play), getting pucks back and entering the zone.

"It definitely feels like we've got some things going."

After going the first 10 road games this season without a power-play goal (0-for-36), the Wings have now scored a power-play goal in six straight games on the road.

They've also scored a power-play goal in eight straight games overall, after Johan Franzen and Pavel Datsyuk scored on the man advantage against Phoenix.

Franzen tied the score 2-2 at 19:21 of the second period. Datsyuk broke the tie with his 11th goal at 6:12 of the third period.

"Just a little more puck luck," said forward Henrik Zetterberg of what's been the difference on the power play. "The puck is bouncing back to our sticks instead of their sticks and we get more chances
