Two former Detroit Red Wings teammates joined forces Thursday to give the NHL bragging rights on the opening day of the Worldstars tour.
Goals by forwards Kris Draper and Sergei Fedorov 29 seconds apart in the second period propelled the Worldstars to a 4-2 doubling of Riga 2000 in Latvia.
Los Angeles King Luc Robitaille, the most prolific left-winger in NHL history with 653 goals, was named the Worldstars' player of the game.
St. Louis Blues defenceman Barret Jackman and Calgary Flames blue-liner Rhett Warrener rounded out the scoring for the locked-out NHL players.
Renars Undelis and Martins Cipulis found the net for Riga, Latvia's top club side.
After Jackman and Undelis exchanged goals, Los Angeles' Robitaille and Fedorov of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks gave the Worldstars a 3-1 advantage.
Cipulis narrowed the gap to 3-2 but Warrener restored the Worldstars' two-goal lead at 13:23 of the final period.
Next up on the Worldstars' 10-game, seven-country tour is Russia on Friday.
