DETROIT (WWJ/AP) The Wings had no problem finding the net Monday evening in a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers in Detroit.

After seven scoreless periods the Wings snapped their scoring drought.

Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and an assist in his return after missing 19 games with a broken wrist. Jiri Hudler, and Drew Miller scored for the Wings as well.

Wings goalie Jimmy Howard had 45 saves during the evening.

Datsyuk’s second-period goal allowed Detroit to avoid getting shut out in three straight games for the first time in franchise history.

Brandon Dubinsky scored with 4:05 left in the game to pull the Rangers within a goal. They failed to tie the game despite having a two-man advantage for 44 seconds late in the third and being on the power play to end the game.

Martin Biron, making his second straight start in place of Henrik Lundqvist, stopped 32 shots for the Rangers.
