Hudler was the third Red Wing to take a shot in the shootout and he delivered a backhand that sailed past Ilja Bryzgalov. Corey Perry had a chance to extend things for Anaheim, but Dominik Hasek smothered Perry's attempt to stuff the puck between the goaltender's pads.
This was a rematch of last season's Western Conference Finals, which Anaheim won in six games.
Anaheim opened its season in London last weekend by splitting two games with Los Angeles.
