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.

Detroit's Dominik Hasek made 29 saves and Anaheim's Jean-Sebastien Giguere finished with 24.
