Chelios returns; Wings snap skid, beat Avs
By The Associated Press

Avs goalie Peter Budaj stopped Zetterberg in overtime, but the Wings' forward got the last laugh, beating Budaj in Tuesday's shootout.
DENVER -- Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk scored in the shootout and had a goal each in regulation as the Red Wings ended a three-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over Colorado on Tuesday.

Robert Lang scored a third-period power-play goal to tie it for Detroit. Datsyuk also had an assist for the Wings, who defeated Colorado for the seventh consecutive time.

Goalie Dominik Hasek made 22 saves. He allowed Joe Sakic to score in the shootout.

Chris Chelios played for Detroit for the first time since two employees were murdered at his restaurant.

Ben Guite scored his first career goal, a short-handed score. Wojtek Wolski and Milan Hejduk had the other goals for Colorado, which had its three-game winning streak snapped.

The goal was the 500th career point for Hejduk. Peter Budaj made 40 saves.

Budaj slid to the left in the crease to steer aside a shot by Zetterberg halfway through overtime and Datsyuk on a breakaway in the last minute. Hasek's only save in overtime came when he blocked Sakic's deflection in the last 15 seconds.

Colorado killed the 1:49 of Tyler Arnason's penalty to start the third period. Then the Avalanche took a 3-2 lead on Hejduk's 15th goal at 3:47, a shot from the lower right circle.

The lead was short-lived as Lang beat Budaj from the left circle at 5:12 after receiving a cross-ice pass from Mikael Samuelsson. Andrew Brunette had been in the penalty box for six-seconds at the time of Lang's 11th goal of the year.

Colorado killed off a penalty on Kurt Sauer midway through the period. Detroit did the same on a Samuelsson penalty at 16:22.

The teams exchanged power-play goals in the first period. Zetterberg scored from the right circle, converting Datsyuk's pass from behind the net at 7:20.

Wolski matched it at 11:59 for Colorado, skating between two Wings and sending a shot over Hasek's stick. Detroit nearly regained the lead late in the period when Tomas Holmstrom's centering pass went off the stick of Brett Clark toward the net, but Budaj smothered the puck in the crease.

Datsyuk put the Wings ahead 2-1 with his 11th goal of the year 7:35 of the second period. Nicklas Lidstrom stole the puck from Hejduk at center ice and Datsyuk did the rest, spinning Colorado defenseman Karlis Skrastins around and tapping the puck between Budaj's pads.

Guite tied it at 2 with an unassisted goal and with Colorado short-handed at 12:04. Detroit outshot the Avalanche 12-5 in the period.

GAME NOTES: The Wings have gone 163 games without being shut out, the longest active streak in the NHL. The all-time record is 264 games set by Calgary, from Nov. 12, 1981-Jan. 9, 1985. ... Detroit D Matieu Schneider was a game time scratch with a sprained knee. ... Colorado played its first game without D John-Michael Liles, sidelined four weeks with a broken left foot. ... Colorado D Karlis Skrastins played in his 475th consecutive game.
