DETROIT -- Dominik Hasek made 25 saves for his seventh shutout of the season and 75th overall, and Pavel Datsyuk scored in the Red Wings' 1-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.
The Wings snapped a four-game losing streak.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 27 saves for Anaheim.
The Wings have already clinched a spot in the playoffs for the 16th consecutive season. That's the longest playoff streak in North American professional sports. The New York Yankees are second with a 12-season playoff streak.
Datsyuk scored his 25th goal 4:30 into the second period, putting in a rebound of Mathieu Schneider's shot from the point off a faceoff. The puck also bounced off Detroit's Tomas Holmstrom, who was in front of Giguere, before Datsyuk scored.
