Hank stays hot; Wings move into first
By The Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Henrik Zetterberg had his first career hat trick to lead the Red Wings to a 4-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

Zetterberg's goals all came on power plays as Zetterberg reached 30 goals for the second straight season and helped the Red Wings sweep the four-game season series with the Coyotes.

Detroit moved into first place in the Western Conference, one point ahead of Nashville in the Central Division, and trail East-leading Buffalo by one point for the overall lead in the NHL.

Zetterberg also had an assist on Jason Williams' empty-netter in the final minute. Dominik Hasek stopped 20 shots and Pavel Datsyuk had assists on all four goals for Detroit.

Mike Zigomanis got the Coyotes, 0-4-1 in ther last five games, on the board 25 seconds into the third.

Zetterberg scored twice in the second period and completed the hat trick on a slap shot at 15:36 of the third.

The Wings broke a scoreless tie midway through the second. With the Coyotes' Derrick Morris off for hooking, Zetterberg took a behind-the-back pass from Mathieu Schneider and drilled a slap shot in at 10:30 while Tomas Holmstrom was screening goalie Mikael Tellqvist in front.

Zetterberg's second goal came when he knocked in a goal-mouth scramble and began to raise his stick to celebrate. However, referee Brad Watson immediately waived off the apparent goal and play continued. At the next stoppage of play, Watson conferred with Ian Walsh, the second referee on the ice, and after a lengthy review, Zetterberg was credited with the goal at 18:01.

Zigomanis then tipped in Morris' shot from the right point to pull the Coyotes to 2-1 early in the third.

Williams capped the scoring with 11 seconds left.

The Wings had better chances during a scoreless first period. Their best opportunity came when Hasek was pulled on a delayed penalty. With an extra attacker, Johan Franzen took a shot from the left circle, but the puck deflected off the left post and slid to the left corner.

GAME NOTES: Holmstrom, who had three goals and an assist in his last game in Phoenix, had no points this time. . . . Holmstrom, Zetterberg and Mathieu Schneider each scored hat tricks against the Coyotes this season. . . . The Coyotes, winners of just two of their last 10 (2-7-1), were coming off a 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim on Thursday.
