Todd Bertuzzi scored the decisive goal in the third round of the shootout as the Detroit Red Wings extended their home winning streak to 19 games with a 2-1 triumph over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.
Defenseman Jakub Kindl tallied in regulation and Joey MacDonald made 29 saves for Detroit, which is one home win away from tying the NHL record shared by the 1929-30 Boston Bruins and 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers.
Tomas Holmstrom played in his 1,000th career game, all with Detroit. The Swede became the sixth player in franchise history to appear in 1,000 contests with the club and second current member of the Red Wings. The other is captain Nicklas Lidstrom, who tied Alex Delvecchio for second place in franchise history by appearing in his 1,549th contest.
Bertuzzi beat Jonas Hiller with a backhander to give the Red Wings a 2-1 edge in the shootout. Bobby Ryan was denied by MacDonald on Anaheim's final chance as Detroit improved to 22-2-1 at Joe Louis Arena this season and 2-0-0 on its current six-game homestand.
Kicking off an eight-game road trip, the Ducks grabbed a 1-0 lead with 3:43 remaining in the first period on a rare goal by enforcer George Parros, who tipped a shot by Rod Pelley past MacDonald. Parros ended an 83-game drought with his first tally since a two-goal performance on Dec. 1, 2010 against Florida.
Detroit wasted little time evening the contest as Kindl beat Hiller with a wrist shot just 2:24 later.
Hiller stopped 23 shots for the Ducks, who fell to 7-30-2 in their last 39 visits to Detroit.
