Red Wings 2, Ducks 1

DETROIT (AP) -Henrik Zetterberg scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period and the Detroit Red Wings held on for a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night after Steve Yzerman's No. 19 jersey was retired.

Dominik Hasek made 21 saves for the Red Wings, who have won four in a row to pull into a first-place tie with Nashville in the Central Division.

After a ceremony that lasted nearly 1 1/2 hours, Tomas Holmstrom kept the sold-out crowd happy with a power-play goal 1 minute into the second period. Ryan Getzlaf made it 1-all a couple of minutes later while the Ducks had a two-man advantage.

Anaheim's Ilja Bryzgalov made 28 saves, filling in for Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who has not played since injuring his groin last week. The Ducks have lost three straight.

Yzerman retired last summer at age 41 after 22 seasons - all in Detroit - and stayed with the organization as a vice president.

He led the Red Wings to Stanley Cup championships in 1997, 1998 and 2002. His career ended with 1,755 regular-season points, a total that led all active players last season and trails just five in NHL history.

His jersey became the sixth retired by the storied franchise and was hoisted to the rafters alongside Gordie Howe's No. 9, Ted Lindsay's No. 7, Terry Sawchuck's No. 1, Alex Delvecchio's No. 10 and Sid Abel's No. 12.

The current Red Wings wore a patch on their shoulders to commemorate the ceremony, then played well enough to win.

Holmstrom scored the first goal by deflecting Mathieu Schneider's slap shot off a cross-ice pass from Jason Williams.

The Ducks had a pair of two-man advantages in the second period and took advantage of one of them with Getzlaf's 16th goal this season.

Zetterberg's 16th put the Red Wings ahead again after Mikael Samuelsson got to a loose puck and passed it to Holmstrom, who made a centering pass to Zetterberg.

Notes: Detroit C Pavel Datsyuk (lower-body injury) and D Chris Chelios (shin) were scratched. ... There was a moment of silence before the game to honor President Gerald Ford, who was raised in Grand Rapids and attended Michigan. ... NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was at the game but did not speak to the crowd during the pregame ceremony.
