Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Henrik Zetterberg scored the game-winning goal on a pretty feed from Tomas Holmstrom as Detroit celebrated Steve Yzerman night with a 2-1 win over Anaheim.

Before the game, the Red Wings honored the legendary career of Yzerman by retiring his No. 19 jersey.

A three-time Stanley Cup champion (1997, '98, 2002) and 10-time All-Star, Yzerman amassed 692 goals and 1,755 points before calling it quits following last season. He played his entire 22-year career in Detroit and was the team's captain from the start of the 1986-87 campaign until he retired, making him the longest-serving captain of any team in NHL history.

A member of the All-Rookie team in 1984 as well as a recipient of the Lester B. Pearson Award in 1989, Yzerman is the Red Wings all-time leader in assists while his career points are second in team history behind Gordie Howe's 1,809.

Mathieu Schneider scored Detroit's other goal, while Dominik Hasek was stellar in net with 21 saves for the Red Wings, who have won four in a row and six of their last seven.

Ryan Getzlaf scored the lone goal for the Ducks, who have lost three games in a row for the first time this season. Goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov returned the lineup after missing the last eight games with a groin injury and finished with 28 saves.

Meanwhile, Anaheim's starting goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere remains out with a groin injury of his own.

After a scoreless first period, Detroit struck first exactly one minute into the second period as Schneider's shot from the left point beat a screened Bryzgalov for a power play tally.

Anaheim answered just over two minutes later, taking advantage of a 5-on-3 power play. After some nice perimeter puck work, Getzlaf rifled a one-timer from the high slot into the top left corner of the Detroit net, knocking Hasek's water bottle onto the ice.
