RED WINGS 4, RANGERS 3

Detroit is able to rally again

NEW YORK -- Henrik Zetterberg capped Detroit's three-goal third period with a power-play score, and the Red Wings overcame Dominik Hasek's shaky start to beat the New York Rangers, 4-3, last night.

Zetterberg got to a loose puck off the stick of Rangers forward Blair Betts in front of the New York net and quickly slammed in a shot to break a 3-3 tie with 7:24 left. It gave Detroit its fourth straight win.

The Red Wings will certainly want more trips to New York than the current schedule allows. Their last two road games have both been in the metropolitan area and featured big third periods in comeback victories.

Detroit, which hadn't played in Madison Square Garden since Oct. 25, 2003, erased a 3-0 deficit to the Islanders in the third period last Tuesday before winning in overtime.
