Detroit 1, Ducks 0

DETROIT (AP) -Dominik Hasek got all the help he needed from Pavel Datsyuk - and the goal posts.

Hasek made 25 saves for his seventh shutout of the season and 75th overall, and Datsyuk scored his 25th goal in the Detroit Red Wings' 1-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

"We didn't give them too much," Hasek said. "They had some chances and hit the post."

The Red Wings snapped a four-game losing streak.

"Been a long time around here since we've been able to talk about a win," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said.

Defenseman Mathieu Schneider praised Hasek.

"He just does what he always does," Schneider said. "He always gives us a chance to win the game."

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 27 saves for Anaheim.

"Exactly like a playoff game," Ducks star Teemu Selanne said. "We stopped skating in the second period."

The Red Wings have already clinched a spot in the playoffs for the 16th consecutive season. That's the longest playoff streak in North American professional sports. The New York Yankees are second with a 12-season playoff streak.

"You get to this point in the season and you're just dying for the playoff to start," Schneider said. "Anytime you come up against a team that's' a potential rival in the playoffs, you want to raise your game and I thought we did that tonight."

Datsyuk scored 4:30 into the second period, putting in a rebound of Schneider's shot from the point off a faceoff. The puck also bounced off Detroit's Tomas Holmstrom, who was in front of Giguere, before Datsyuk scored.

"He's just a flat-out good player," Babcock about Datsyuk. "Whether you're killing a penalty or protecting a lead and he's dangerous offensively."

The Ducks had a breakdown on the faceoff

"I don't know what happened," said Anaheim's Corey Perry. "We made a mistake on the face-off and, before you know it, the puck is in the net."

Notes: Detroit defenseman Chris Chelios was honored by USA Hockey before the game for playing more NHL games (1,542) than any other U.S.-born player. ... Five of Anaheim's six remaining games are on the road. ... Red Wings defenseman Brett Lebda missed the game because of a concussion.

GAME PREVIEW

4 p.m. (Pacific) at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Mich.
TV: Versus     Radio: AM 830

The Ducks and Red Wings continue the chase for the top spot in the Western Conference in their matchup tonight at Joe Louis Arena. Both teams trail Nashville, which leads the conference with 103 points and is tied with Buffalo for the most in the league. Detroit swept the Predators in a home-and-home series two weeks ago to take over first place in the West, but the Red Wings (45-19-11) have since dropped four in a row, their longest losing streak of the season.

Meanwhile, the Ducks followed two frustrating losses to L.A. and Phoenix with a resounding overtime win in their last game at home versus Dallas. That clinched a postseason berth for the Ducks, who go into tonight's contest with a four-point lead over both Dallas and San Jose in the Pacific Division.

x Clinched playoff berth
Monday's contest is the finale of a three-game homestand for Detroit, which has dropped the first two games in shootouts to teams with losing records. After falling 2-1 to Columbus on Thursday, the Red Wings lost 3-2 to St. Louis on Saturday.

Before this losing streak, the Red Wings had gone 9-1-3 in their previous 13 games, a stretch capped by the sweep of the Predators. Detroit remains stuck on 101 points, one more than Anaheim, but can tie Nashville with a victory Monday.

Anaheim (44-19-12) is in the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Ducks set team records for wins and points with Friday's victory, breaking the marks set in 2005-06.

"It's nice to clinch a playoff spot, but nobody is talking about that for us. We're in, but what does it mean?" Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "Right now it's about getting our team to play at the top of their game and be more consistent with what we do.

"We'll see how we can carry this out onto the road, and it starts Monday night in Detroit."

The contest marks the start of a four-game road trip for Anaheim, which finishes with six of its last seven games away from home.

The Ducks have won two of the first three meetings with the Red Wings this season, but both victories came in Anaheim. Detroit has won seven straight at home against the Ducks and has been dominating at Joe Louis Arena, losing just twice in 25 all-time home matchups with Anaheim.
