Zetterberg ends slump with 2 goals, Abdelkader adds 2 in Red Wings' 5-2 win over host Canucks

Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader both scored two goals, and the Detroit Red Wings surged past the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Saturday night.

Zetterberg broke out with his first goals in 11 games, dating to the Red Wings' 8-3 rout of Vancouver in Detroit on Feb. 24.

Daniel Cleary also scored for the Red Wings (14-10-5), who earned their second road win in two nights.

Alex Burrows scored both of Vancouver's goals. His first, which came just 6 seconds in, was the fastest opening goal in Canucks history.

Vancouver, which outshot Detroit 35-26, allowed one power-play goal in three chances, but the Canucks were 0-for-6 on their advantages.

The Canucks lost for the first time in three games.
