Wings pluck Ducks on Yzerman\'s night
DETROIT -- On the night the Red Wings honored an old star, one of their brightest younger players won the game for them.

Henrik Zetterberg scored the game-winning goal as the Red Wings downed the Anaheim Ducks, 2-1, on the night they retired Steve Yzerman's No. 19.

The left wing netted the decisive tally at 16:51 of the second period when he took a pass from Tomas Holmstrom in the corner and poked the puck past Ilya Bryzgalov to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead.

Earlier, Zetterberg assisted on defenseman Mathieu Schneider's power-play goal at 1:00 of the second period to give Detroit a 1-0 lead. Ryan Getzlaf's power-play goal for Anaheim at 3:24 of the second knotted the game, 1-1.

Before the game, the Red Wings honored longtime captain Yzerman, whose number was raised to the rafters of Joe Louis Arena.

Yzerman served as captain of Detroit for 20 straight seasons, the longest such streak in NHL history. He led the Red Wings to Stanley Cup titles in 1997, 1998 and 2002.

The center totalled 1,723 points in his 22 seasons with Detroit, the second-most in Red Wings history, trailing only Gordie Howe's 1,809.
