Datsyuk, Zetterberg give Red Wings SO win
Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg scored in the shootout, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 on Thursday night for their 13th straight home win.
Valtteri Filppula, Johan Franzen scored in regulation for Detroit, which moved within one home of matching the team's best streak. Jimmy Howard stopped 25 shots to earn his 100th career NHL win.
Howard and Pavel Datsyuk, who returned after missing a game with a lower-body injury, were selected earlier Thursday to play in the NHL All-Star game at the end of January. Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom wasn't picked, but it is believed that the 41-year-old defenseman asked to have that weekend off instead of going to Ottawa.
Radim Vrbata, Taylor Pyatt scored regulation goals for Phoenix, and Vrbata added one in the shootout. Mike Smith made 40 saves.
