DETROIT (AP) -- Henrik Zetterberg took a big step as the leader of a storied franchise, snapping a scoring slump in a clutch way with his second goal in overtime.

The Detroit Red Wings Red Wings still have a shot to advance in the NHL playoffs.

Zetterberg netted his second goal 1:04 into overtime to lift Detroit to a 4-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 6 on Friday night to extend the first-round series.

"Those two were kind of ugly ones, but that's what you need in the playoffs," he said.

Second-seeded Anaheim will host seventh-seeded Detroit on Sunday night in the deciding game.

"It hasn't really been a tremendous home-ice advantage," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I don't think where we play is really going to matter."
