DETROIT -- Marian Hossa scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period and the Red Wings held on to beat the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 Monday night.

Johan Franzen also scored for Detroit and Chris Osgood made 15 saves.


Chris Kunitz scored Anaheim's goal and Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 37 shots before being removed after two periods. Jonas Hiller made eight saves in the third period.

Hossa got the winner 1:48 into the third period when he beat Hiller from the right circle to convert a two-on-one pass from Dan Cleary. It was Hossa's 14th goal and the second straight Red Wings' win in which he broke a third period tie.

Franzen tied it 1-all with 5:34 left in the second period when he tipped in Nicklas Lidstrom's shot from the point out of midair for his 11th goal.

Kunitz opened the scoring just 1:50 into the game on Anaheim's first shot, when he stuffed in a shot from beside the net for his fifth goal. It was set up by Detroit defenseman Brad Stuart's giveaway behind his own net.

The Red Wings gave up a goal on the opponent's first shot for the second consecutive game. Franzen's goal came on Detroit's 32nd shot.
