Zetterberg scores 2nd goal in OT to lift Red Wings to series-extending 4-3 win against Ducks

DETROIT - Henrik Zetterberg scored his second goal 1:04 into overtime, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 6 on Friday night to extend their first-round series.

Detroit blew a two-goal lead in the last 3 1/2 minutes of the third period, sending the team to a fourth OT in a series for the first time in franchise history.

Emerson Etem and Bobby Ryan scored 51 seconds apart late in regulation to pull the Ducks into a 3-3 tie.

Zetterberg, who scored a go-ahead goal 6:19 into the third period, had a shot to win it with about a minute left. But his shot hit the right post and slid across the crease.

Second-seeded Anaheim will host seventh-seeded Detroit on Sunday night in the deciding game.

It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
