DETROIT – Pavel Datsyuk made an instant impact for the Detroit Red Wings in a 5-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, giving them a 3-2 lead in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Datsyuk, who missed seven games with a foot injury, set up Dan Cleary's goal that started the scoring tonight, was on the ice for the second score and assisted on Brian Rafalski's tally that gave the Red Wings a 4-0 lead midway through the second period.

Henrik Zetterberg scored late in the second, chasing Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped just 18 of 23 shots.

Detroit's Chris Osgood made 22 saves for his 15th career playoff shutout.

Game 6 is Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, where the Red Wings can hoist the Cup for the second straight season.
