Wings earn two big points on Nashville
By The Associated Press

DETROIT -- Henrik Zetterberg had two goals and an assist, and Pavel Datsyuk added four assists to lift the Red Wings to a 5-3 victory over the Nashville Predators on Wednesday.

Nicklas Lidstrom, Jiri Hudler and Tomas Holmstrom also scored for Detroit, which won its fifth straight.

Datsyuk has 14 points -- two goals and 12 assists -- in his last five games, Zetterberg has three goals and nine assists while scoring at least a point in six straight games, and Holmstrom has nine goals in his last 10 games.

Greg Zanon got his first NHL goal, and Jordin Tootoo and Dan Hamhuis also scored for Nashville, which snapped its six-game winning streak.

Detroit scored four goals in the second period.

Zetterberg's second of the game and 19th of the season tied the score, 2-2, with a backhanded shot from the right circle that trickled through Tomas Vokoun's pads at 1:32.

Vokoun was then pulled in favor of Chris Mason, and Hamhuis put the Predators back in front 53-seconds later with a shot that went off the stick of Wings defenseman Andreas Lilja and into the net.

Lidstrom's power-play goal tied the score, 3-3, when he tipped in Datsyuk's pass with 7:38 remaining in the period. Hudler gave Detroit the lead for good less than 2 minutes later when he beat Mason from the bottom of the left circle. Holmstrom closed the scoring with his 14th goal with one-minute left in the period.

Zanon opened the scoring as he tipped in Steve Sullivan's pass 6:35 into the game. Zetterberg tied the score 50 seconds later.

Tootoo tipped in Scott Hartnell's pass to put the Predators ahead again with 5:08 left in the period.
