Tyler Bertuzzi and Joe Veleno scored for the Red Wings. Ville Husso stopped 22 shots.
Bertuzzi scored the only goal of the first period. Dylan Larkin, who had a hat trick in the All-Star game, dug the puck away from the boards and passed it to Lucas Raymond. Raymond backhanded a pass in front to Bertuzzi, who one-timed it past Campbell at 10:24 for his second goal of the season.
The Oilers scored twice in a 36-second span early in the second period. Philip Broberg set up McLeod’s ninth goal with a pass from the left circle. McLeod skated into the slot and fired the puck past Husso. Kane collected the secondary assist.
Foegele finished off a two-on-one break with a one-timer for his first goal of the game. Nugent-Hopkins set him up.
The Oilers made it 3-1 at 11:55 of the period. Vincent Desharnais flicked a shot from the point that deflected off Foegele and past Husso. Broberg was credited with the secondary assist.
Veleno scored with nine seconds left in the period, just after the Red Wings killed off a penalty. Moritz Seider collected the puck along the blue line, fought off a defender and found Veleno in the left circle. He beat Campbell with a low shot for his seventh goal. Jake Walman had the secondary assist.
Campbell made a glove save against Jonatan Berggren midway through the third to keep Edmonton on top.
With Michael Rasmussen in the penalty box for interference, the Oilers got some breathing room with 4:22 remaining. Nugent-Hopkins scored his 23rd goal off Tyson Barrie’s pass from the point. Connor McDavid had the other assist.
Kane scored an empty-netter with 2:37 left.
