DETROIT (AP) -Daniel Cleary converted the first successful penalty shot ever in Detroit during the playoffs, and Henrik Zetterberg had two goals in the Red Wings' 5-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Saturday.|
Detroit leads the first-round series 3-2.
With a few minutes left in the game, Calgary backup goaltender Jamie McLennan slashed Johan Franzen's midsection. That could lead to a sanction from the NHL, which suspended the Islanders' Chris Simon 25 games for viciously swinging his stick last month.
Cleary, Zetterberg and Chris Chelios scored in the second period and Zetterberg added another goal early in the third to give Detroit a 4-0 lead.
Calgary's Andrei Zyuzin deflected a shot past Dominik Hasek, who stopped 23 shots, midway through the final period.
Pavel Datsyuk put Detroit ahead 5-1 with 4:18 left to play and about a minute later, Miikka Kiprusoff was replaced by McLennan. Kiprusoff finished with 33 saves.
