ANAHEIM, Calif. — Henrik Zetterberg and Valtteri Filppula each had a goal and an assist, and the Detroit Red Wings finished off the Anaheim Ducks with a 3-2 victory in Game 7 of their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series Sunday night.

Justin Abdelkader scored a short-handed goal and Jimmy Howard made 31 saves as the seventh-seeded Red Wings won three of the final four games to oust the Ducks, who had the NHL's third-best record in the regular season.

Detroit will play top-seeded Chicago in the second round.

Emerson Etem and Francois Beauchemin scored for the Ducks.

After the teams played four overtimes in the series' first six games, the Red Wings largely dominated the anti-climactic clincher — and for the first time in the series, Detroit didn't even need overtime to win.

Zetterberg scored three goals in Detroit's last two games.

Other games

At Rangers 1, Capitals 0

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots and Derick Brassard scored a second-period goal for New York, which evened its East series with Washington.

Game 7 is Monday in Washington. The home team has won each game so far.

At Maple Leafs 2, Bruins 1

Captain Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel scored third-period goals and Toronto edged Boston in Game 6 to send their East series back to Boston for Game 7 Monday.

Note

Derek Boogaard's family has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the NHL, The New York Times reported.

The newspaper reported the family claims in the lawsuit that the league is responsible for the brain damage Boogaard had from six seasons in an enforcer role, and for his addiction to prescription painkillers. He died in 2011 at age 28.
