ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _Two power-play goals by Fredrik Olausson and a third by Paul Kariya sparked the Anaheim Mighty Ducks to a 3-1 victory over Detroit on Sunday night.

Anaheim goalie Guy Hebert stopped 33 shots as the Mighty Ducks coped with a nemesis to take a giant step toward a possible playoff berth. Coupled with San Jose's loss in Dallas earlier Sunday, Anaheim's sixth victory in 28 games against Detroit moved the Mighty Ducks within two points of the Sharks for the final playoff in the Western Conference.

Olausson broke a 1-1 tie in the second period, using assists by Kariya and Teemu Selanne to slap a hard shot into the net from the blue line.

Olausson's second goal of the game gave him 11 career multi-goal games, his first since Feb. 10, 1999 against Philadelphia.

Kariya dug the puck out of a scramble in front of the goal and buried it into the net at 3:46 of the third period. Kariya's 36th goal of the season tied Anaheim's season high of three power-play goals.

Constant pressure on Hebert paid off in the Red Wings' first goal nearly 10 minutes into the game. Nicklas Lidstrom made it 1-0 on a power-play goal assisted by Steve Yzerman and Tomas Holmstrom. Lidstrom's 18th goal came on Detroit's 10th consecutive shot at Hebert.

Anaheim drew even a little more than four minutes later on Olausson's point-blank 25-footer past goalie Ken Wregget.

Detroit defenseman Larry Murphy played in his 1,550th game, breaking a tie with Alex Delvecchio to move into second for career games. Only Gordie Howe, with 1,767, has played more games in NHL history.
