Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - The playoff-tested Detroit Red Wings proved Sunday that experience prevails over youth when it comes to the pressures of Game 7.

Henrik Zetterberg and Valtteri Filppula each had a goal and an assist, as the seventh-seeded Red Wings took down the Anaheim Ducks, 3-2, to advance to the Western Conference semifinals.

Justin Abdelkader also lit the lamp for Detroit, which improved to 14-9 all- time in Game 7s. Jimmy Howard made 31 saves.

The Red Wings will play the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks in the next round. The Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild in five games.

Jonas Hiller stopped 29-of-32 shots in defeat.
