After taking a pass from Henrik Zetterberg, Schneider blasted a slap shot past Marty Turco from the high slot for his sixth goal.

Draper got the Red Wings even at 1 at 3:03 of the third period with Jiri Hudler in the penalty box for tripping. He put the carom of Nicklas Lidstrom's shot off the back boards between Turco's pads

Turco, who made 27 saves, fell to 1-8-5 against the Red Wings.

Dallas opened the scoring 6:22 into the second period, when Miettinen beat Hasek with a one-timer from along the goal line below the left circle. He took a pass from Mike Ribeiro, who was in the high slot, after a turnover by Detroit's Jason Williams.

Williams was playing his fifth game after missing three following a concussion. ... Red Wings LW Johan Franzen missed his third game because of a concussion and sore knee. ... Dallas captain Brenden Morrow didn't play because of a groin strain.
