DETROIT, Feb. 29 (UPI) -- Devin Setoguchi scored twice Friday to help the San Jose Sharks edge the struggling Detroit Red Wings 3-2.

Joe Pavelski also scored for the Sharks, winners of four in a row after losing five straight. Evgeni Nabokov made 20 saves.

Henrik Zetterberg delivered a goal and an assist for Detroit, which has lost four in a row and 10 out of 11.

The Red Wings seemed to have the best record in the NHL wrapped up a month ago, but they now have only a three-point lead over Dallas.

Pavelski wristed a shot past Dominik Hasek just 1:40 into the game and Setoguchi put a one-timer over Hasek's glove 52 seconds into the second period.

This was the seventh game on San Jose's eight-game road trip and the Sharks downed the Red Wings for the first time in four tries.
