ANAHEIM, Calif., May 10 (UPI) -- Henrik Zetterberg had a goal and two assists Sunday and the Detroit Red Wings beat Anaheim 4-1 to go up 3-2 in their Western Conference playoff series.

Chris Osgood faced only 17 shots on goal while Anaheim's Jonas Hiller made 34 saves.

Detroit put the game on Darren Helm's first playoff goal with 3:08 remaining in regulation and Zetterberg's empty-net goal wrapped up the scoring.

After a scoreless first period, the Red Wings took a 2-0 lead early in the second period. Johan Franzen flipped in a wrist shot at 3:23 and was followed at 4:02 Jiri Hudler, who knocked in a follow-up to Zetterberg's shot on a charge to the crease.

Ryan Whitney scored the lone Ducks goal at 15:37 of the period on a power play.

Game 6 is set for Tuesday in Anaheim.
