DETROIT, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Mathieu Schneider had a goal and an assist Sunday in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 win at Detroit.

Schneider's eighth goal of the season at 8:28 of the second period gave Anaheim a 2-1 advantage and turned out to be the game-winner, as his team never trailed from that point. His assist came on Kent Huskins' third at 15:18 in the second.


Ryan Carter's third goal of the season tied the contest 1-1 at 17:49 of the first period.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 27 of 29 shots for the Ducks, whose winning streak rose to four games after a six-game losing streak.

Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk scored in the first and Johan Franzen scored in the third. Chris Osgood yielded three goals on 19 shots for the Red Wings, who have lost three in a row.

Before the contest, Detroit learned that star right wing Daniel Cleary will miss about six weeks after suffering a broken jaw in Saturday's loss at Toronto.
