DETROIT (AP) -The Phoenix Coyotes scored their first three goals on special teams and Ilya Bryzgalov made 31 saves in a 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday that forced Game 7.

Phoenix will host the final game of the first-round series on Tuesday night.

Lauri Korpikoski scored a short-handed goal 4:10 in to spark the win and keep the Coyotes alive.

Mathieu Schneider snapped the Coyotes' 0 for 19 skid on the power play with a goal early in the second for a 2-0 lead, and Radim Vrbata scored with the man advantage midway through the period to restore the two-goal edge.

Wojtek Wolski's even-strength goal put Phoenix ahead 4-1 late in the second.

Jimmy Howard made 24 saves for the Red Wings.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Daniel Sedin scored with 2:03 to play, and Vancouver rallied from another third-period deficit to finish off its first-round series against Los Angeles with a victory in Game 6.

Roberto Luongo made 30 saves while keeping Vancouver close in its third straight victory over Los Angeles, and Kevin Bieksa tied it early in the third period for the third-seeded Canucks.

Sedin then skated in to collect a loose puck and snapped a shot over goalie Jonathan Quick, sending Vancouver to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs for the third time in four seasons.

Drew Doughty and Alexander Frolov scored and Quick stopped 18 shots for the sixth-seeded Kings, who struggled to finish close games in their first playoff appearance since 2002.
