Detroit controlled the majority of the game and finished with a 37-22 advantage in shots on goal.
Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk sat out for the fourth straight game with a lower-body injury, and defenseman Niklas Kronwall was scratched due to a lower-body injury. Right wing Erik Cole exited after the first period with a lower-body injury.
The Red Wings had an answer for every Coyotes goal in regulation but could not score in the closing minutes.
John Moore gave Arizona a 1-0 lead in the first period with his second goal of the season.
After Moss' first goal of the game gave Arizona a 3-2 advantage late in the second, Kindl — playing in place of Kronwall — sparked the Detroit crowd when he knocked in his fifth of the season to tie it early in the third.
Moss' second goal gave Arizona a 4-3 lead with under 10 minutes to go in the final period, but Nyquist quickly responded with his 23rd of the season to tie the game once again.
Detroit had several chances to take the lead in the final minutes, but Smith stifled each one.
