Persistent Wings beat Blackhawks, 2-1
CHICAGO -- With the Red Wings' winning streak in jeopardy, Henrik Zetterberg and Robert Lang saved the day in the third period.

Zetterberg and Lang scored in a 3:10 span and Chris Osgood made 21 saves as the Wings won their fifth straight game, a 2-1 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks.

In posting its fifth consecutive one-goal victory, Detroit recorded its ninth win in 10 meetings against 'Original Six' rival Chicago, which suffered its seventh straight defeat.

Trailing 1-0, Detroit tied the score at 3:09 of the third period when Zetterberg set up Tomas Holmstrom, who was stopped on four shots from the doorstep by netminder Brian Boucher before Zetterberg fired the rebound inside the left goalpost.

Lang gave Detroit a 2-1 lead at 6:19 of the final session with a wrister of Brett Lebda's drop pass from the left faceoff circle that deflected off Chicago defenseman Adrian Aucoin and beat Boucher to the glove side.

Osgood, who needed to make just one save in the second period, won for the third time in four decisions and recorded his 328th career victory. He is one win shy of teammate Dominik Hasek for fourth place among active netminders.

Rene Bourque opened the scoring for the Blackhawks with 6:16 left in the first period with his fourth goal of the season, easily converting Radim Vrbata's centering feed from the right circle.

Winless in seven starts this season, Boucher made 27 saves for Chicago, which has scored just three times in its last five contests.
