DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings' shootout prowess saved their home winning streak after they were outplayed for 65 minutes.

Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi scored shootout goals to give Detroit its 19th consecutive home victory, 2-1 over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

The Red Wings tied the 1970-71 Boston Bruins for the second-longest home streak in NHL history. The 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers and the 1929-30 Bruins won 20 consecutive games at home. Detroit can tie the record against Philadelphia when the Flyers visit to Joe Louis Arena on Sunday night.

"They seem to be real comfortable here and find a way. It's fun that we're going to have Philly in here," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "We'll have a good skate tomorrow and (try to) tie that record. I haven't even thought about that record until now, so we might as well tie it, with Philly coming in here."

Detroit is 7-1 in shootouts this season.

Jakub Kindl scored for Detroit. Joey MacDonald made 29 saves in regulation and overtime. The Red Wings killed off all seven Anaheim power plays.

"They played well, really, really well. They held onto the puck and they were strong down low," Bertuzzi said. "Just one of those grinding games and then, obviously, with the officiating and all of the penalties it didn't really roll. Obviously, we're pretty excited that we got the win."

Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom played in his 1,549th game to tie former Detroit star Alex Delvecchio's NHL record for games with one team. It's also the second-most games played in Detroit franchise history, behind Gordie Howe at 1,687.

Detroit also had a rare 5-on-3 in the overtime period.

With the teams playing 3-on-3, Anaheim's Corey Perry took a penalty for tripping Detroit's Valtteri Filppula with 53 seconds left in the OT. Each team has to have at least three skaters at all times, so his penalty didn't begin until Lubomir Visnovsky's previous penalty ended. When it did, Visnovsky couldn't come back on the ice because Perry's penalty meant that the Ducks could only have three men on the ice. Detroit's Brad Stuart's penalty ended 29 seconds before Visnovsky's to give Detroit a 4-on-3 before Perry's penalty began. In that situation, the team with the power play is allowed to add a fifth player for a 5-on-3, which lasted for the rest of the overtime.

George Parros scored for Anaheim, and Jonas Hiller stopped 23 shots. Teemu Selanne scored in the shootout. The team missed several open-net opportunities.

"We think we deserved a better fate," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "But when you go 0-for7 on the power play, even if you get three-four good looks, you don't expect to win."

The Ducks' Cam Fowler hit the goal post on a breakaway with 1:40 left in overtime and the teams playing 3-on-3.

"I'm not sure if he (MacDonald) got his glove on it but I saw it hit the post," said Fowler, who made a move and took a backhand shot. "It would have been such a great goal to score."

Fowler grew up in the Detroit-area suburb of Farmington Hills and played junior hockey with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League. Windsor is across the Detroit River from Detroit.

An apparent goal by Anaheim's Niklas Hagman 3:35 into the second period was waved off because of Parros' penalty for goalie interference.

Parros scored his first goal of the season to open the scoring with 3:43 left in the first period. The Anaheim enforcer deflected in Rod Pelley's shot from the point.

Kindl tied it with 1:18 left in the opening period, beating Hiller with a wrist shot from the point. It was Kindl's second goal.

NOTES: It was Detroit right wing Tomas Holmstrom's 1,000th game. He joins Howe, Delvecchio, Lidstrom Steve Yzerman and Kris Draper as the only players who have played 1,000 games for the Red Wings. ... Detroit right wing Danny Cleary didn't play because he had his left knee drained and got a cortisone shot. He is expected to miss two more games. Jan Mursak replaced him in the lineup. ... Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard missed his fourth game because of a broken right index finger. He hopes to start taking shots in practice Saturday.
