DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings kept rolling without their hottest player.
Darren Helm and Henrik Zetterberg scored first-period goals to help make up for the loss of Johan Franzen and Detroit held on for a 2-1 victory Saturday night over the Dallas Stars and a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.
Stephane Robidas tied the score at 1-1 midway through the first period, but the Stars struggled to get shots to or past Chris Osgood.
The game ended in ugly fashion as Osgood seemed to use the handle of his stick to poke a Stars player skating past him and Dallas' Mike Ribeiro retaliated by slashing Osgood across the chest from behind the net.
After some scuffling, Ribeiro was called for a match penalty.
The Red Wings had a setback before the game, announcing Franzen was scratched from the lineup and would also sit out Game 3 because of concussion-like symptoms. He has had recurring headaches since early in the previous series.
