DETROIT, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- A goal and an assist each from Valtteri Filppula and Tomas Holmstrom Friday night carried the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-1 victory over San Jose.

The Red Wings won their fourth straight and dominated play by out-shooting the Sharks, 39-11.

Chris Osgood, replacing the injured Dominik Hasek in goal for Detroit, came within 5:52 of recording a shutout. Hasek is out of action indefinitely with a sore hip.

Andreas Lilja, Henrik Zetterberg and Kirk Maltby also scored for Detroit. Zetterberg scored his eighth goal of the season and has produced a point in all 11 games to start the campaign.

San Jose had won its two previous games.

The result ended a good day for the Red Wings, who earlier announced they had re-signed center Kris Draper to a three-year deal. He had an assist against San Jose.
