DALLAS -- Henrik Zetterberg netted the go-ahead goal with 4:36 left, after setting up the tying score a little over four minutes earlier, and the Red Wings rallied for a 3-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday.

The Stars held a 1-0 lead midway through the third period behind rookie goalie Mike Smith, who was trying for his second shutout in three games. But Pavel Datsyuk tied it at 1 at 11:14 with his 18th goal off a setup by Zetterberg.

Zetterberg gave the Wings the lead at 15:24 with his 27th goal on a shot from the high slot.

Mathieu Schneider added an empty-netter with 33 seconds left, assisted by Zetterberg, to ice the victory and snap Dallas' three-game winning streak.

Mike Ribeiro had a second-period, power-play goal for the Stars.

The Wings got 17 saves from Chris Osgood, who started despite a broken right index finger. Detroit, routed by the Philadelphia Flyers 6-1 on Monday, has won seven of nine.
