Sheahan scores in 3rd to lift Red Wings over Ducks 2-1
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Riley Sheahan scored with 3:44 remaining in the third period to give the Detroit Red Wings a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night for their fifth straight win.
Tomas Tatar also scored and Petr Mrazek made 30 saves to help Detroit end a four-game losing streak to Anaheim.
After Sheahan forced a turnover inside the Ducks' zone by tying up Ryan Getzlaf at the blue line, Dylan Larkin collected the loose puck and got it back to Sheahan. He unleashed a blistering wrist shot past John Gibson.
Corey Perry scored for the Ducks, and Gibson stopped 23 shots. Anaheim did not earn a point for only the second time in its last nine games.
