Niedermayer nets OT goal; ties series
By Larry Lage, The Associated Press

DETROIT -- Scott Niedermayer scored with 5:43 left in overtime to lift the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 victory Sunday night over the Red Wings, evening the Western Conference finals at a game apiece.

Detroit went ahead for the first time 1:03 into the third period, when a two-man advantage created space for Pavel Datsyuk's one-timer off a crisp pass from Robert Lang.

The 3-2 lead didn't last long.

Travis Moen tied the game 4 minutes later, giving the Ducks their second straight goal that required a video review.

Swarming defense limited scoring chances for the rest of regulation and when shots did go toward the net, Detroit's Dominik Hasek and Anaheim's Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned them away.

Hasek had 29 saves and Giguere finished with 24. Game 3 is Tuesday night at Anaheim, Calif.

In the first two periods of Game 2, the Ducks took the lead twice and Detroit tied the game each time.

Rob Niedermayer scored at 17:04 of the first period and Kirk Maltby answered with a short-handed goal midway through the second.

Just as they did in the third period, the Ducks scored shortly after Detroit to quiet the crowd and stunt momentum.

Andy McDonald scored -- following a review -- a little more than a minute after Maltby to put Anaheim ahead 2-1. Nicklas Lidstrom tied it at 16:07 of the second period with a power-play goal. Anaheim's win guarantees the series will not end with a sweep for the first time in four matchups.
