DETROIT (AP) -Scott Niedermayer scored at 14:17 of overtime to lift the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 victory Sunday night over the Detroit Red Wings, evening the Western Conference finals at a game apiece.
Detroit went ahead for the first time 1:03 into the third period, when a two-man advantage created space for Pavel Datsyuk's one-timer off a crisp pass from Robert Lang.
The 3-2 lead didn't last long.
Travis Moen tied the game 4 minutes later, giving the Ducks their second straight goal that required a video review.
Detroit's Dominik Hasek made 29 saves and Anaheim's Jean-Sebastien Giguere finished with 24.
Game 3 is Tuesday night at Anaheim, Calif.
Rob Niedermayer opened the scoring at 17:04 of the first period and Kirk Maltby answered with a short-handed goal midway through the second.
Andy McDonald scored - following a review - a little more than a minute after Maltby to put Anaheim ahead 2-1. Nicklas Lidstrom tied it at 16:07 of the second period with a power-play goal.
