 DETROIT (AP) -Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg each scored a goal and set up two others Saturday, leading the Detroit Red Wings past the San Jose Sharks 4-1 and within one victory of reaching the Western Conference finals.
Detroit leads 3-2 and can end the series Monday night in San Jose.
Datsyuk turned San Jose goalie Evgeni Nabokov's misplay into the winning goal late in the second period, and Nabokov didn't seem the same after that, surrendering a pair of third-period power-play goals.
Marcel Goc scored with 15:07 left in the first period to give the Sharks a 1-0 lead.
Zetterberg tied the score three minutes into the second period with his fourth postseason goal.
Mikael Samuelsson added an insurance goal nearly four minutes into the final period, slapping a one-timer past Nabokov. Tomas Holmstrom concluded the scoring with 13:46 left in the third.
Defenseman Mathieu Schneider broke his wrist during the first period and will miss the rest of the playoffs, Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. Schneider was hurt when checked by Sharks captain Patrick Marleau.
