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.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
