Lowry scored at 12:17 of the first after he and Copp went in alone on Comrie while the Jets were killing Kyle Connor's slashing penalty.
After a rebound and scramble in the crease, Comrie had the puck under his arm and Lowry banged at the puck with his stick until it went into the net. Detroit challenged for goaltender interference, but the official announced the puck hadn't been completely frozen, so the goal stood.
Ehn tied it 1-1 at 7:39 of the second, but Winnipeg responded with the onslaught.
Wheeler got his 200th goal with the Jets franchise, Copp deflected in a Josh Morrissey point shot and Laine made it 4-1 after he stick-handled his way through defenders and beat Comrie.
The Jets had outshot the Red Wings 26-12 through two periods.
Scheifele's goal extended his point streak to four games with five goals and one assist during that span.
