Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Justin Abdelkader posted the first hat trick of his career as Detroit ended Anaheim's home winning streak with a 5-1 win on Friday.

Anaheim came into this contest having won 13 straight at home, but thanks to Abdelkader and 33 saves from Jimmy Howard, the Red Wings put an end to that run.

Abdelkader also had an assist while Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen each had a goal and two assists for the Red Wings, who have won three of four.

Teemu Selanne had the lone goal of the game for the Ducks, who hadn't lost at home since a 5-0 loss to Vancouver on Jan. 25. Viktor Fasth was pulled early in the second period after giving up three goals on 11 shots, while Jonas Hiller made 10 saves the rest of the way.

These two teams will meet again in Anaheim on Sunday.
