Wings ring in new year, crown Kings
DETROIT -- Pavel Datsyuk and Jason Williams each had a goal and an assist to lift the Red Wings to a 6-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night.

Tomas Holmstrom, Valtteri Filppula, Kris Draper and Mikael Samuelsson also scored in Detroit's 12th straight win over Los Angeles. Mathieu Schneider added two assists.

Dominik Hasek made 28 saves.

Alexander Frolov scored both of the Kings' goals.

Los Angeles tied it at 1 on Frolov's first goal, a power-play score 1:55 into the second period. He backhanded a rebound over a prone Hasek.

Detroit then scored twice in less than two minutes.

Filppula scored at 4:50 when the rebound of his shot deflected in off his skate as he slid toward the net. Datsyuk gave the Wings a 3-1 lead at 6:40, when he beat Mathieu Garon with a wrist shot from the top of the left circle for his 10th goal.

Frolov's second goal and 21st of the season brought the Kings to within one with 7:18 left, when he blasted a slap shot from the high slot past Hasek.

But Draper restored Detroit's two-goal lead with 2:48 remaining in the middle period, when he completed a 2-on-1, by knocking Johan Franzen's pass into the net.

Samuelsson got a power-play goal 4:27 into the third period, and Williams added his tally at 5:26. The Kings then pulled Garon in favor of Barry Brust.

Holmstrom opened the scoring 5:45 into the first period when he tipped in a touch cross-crease pass from Henrik Zetterberg. That completed a three-way passing play that began with Datsyuk's feed across the slot to Zetterberg.

GAME NOTES: Detroit D Chris Chelios missed his second game with a lower body injury. ... Los Angeles LW Scott Thornton missed his second game with a wrist injury. ... Samuelsson returned after missing six games with an injured groin.
