DETROIT, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Pavel Datsyuk scored with 6 seconds left Friday to give Detroit a 2-1 victory over Nashville and extend the Red Wings' home winning streak to 22 games.

Detroit will try to keep club-record streak going while playing five of its next seven games in its own building.

Johan Franzen gave the Red Wings the lead on a slap shot with 7:16 to go in the first period, but Detroit could not beat Pekka Rinne again until the closing seconds.

Nick Spaling tied it with 5:02 to go in the second period, the only goal allowed by Joey MacDonald.

MacDonald made 20 saves in Detroit's fifth straight win overall.

Rinne stopped 29 shots for the Predators, who have lost two in a row and five out of six.
