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.

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.

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.
