DETROIT (AP) - Nicklas Lidstrom had three assists and Chris Osgood made 25 saves to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 3-1 Wednesday night.

Henrik Zetterberg, Mathieu Schneider and Kris Draper scored for the Red Wings, who have won four straight and six of seven. Osgood, who has been Manny Legace's backup this season, got his second straight win in his second consecutive start.

Teemu Selanne scored for Anaheim, which had its three-game winning streak snapped.

Zetterberg scored on the Red Wings' first shot just a minute into the game, when he beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere with a low wrist shot for his 34th goal.

Schneider made it 2-0 with a 5-on-3 power-play goal at 9:15, converting a slap shot from the high slot. It gave him a career-high 21 goals. The defenseman's previous high was 20 with Montreal in 1993-94.

Anaheim cut the lead in half with a power-play goal from Selanne with 5:44 left in the opening period. The forward put in a cross-crease pass from Scott Neidermayer for his 29th goal.

Draper added an empty-net goal with 9.1 seconds left.

Zetterberg has eight goals and three assists in his last seven games. ... Detroit RW Mikael Samuelsson missed his sixth game with a wrist injury suffered with Sweden during the Olympics.
