DETROIT (AP) - Dan Cleary scored twice against the team that drafted him, leading the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday.

Cleary's second goal came midway through the third period, 1:27 after Mikael Samuelsson's go-ahead score, for the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Detroit's Chris Osgood made 30 saves, and Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 38 shots for the Blackhawks, who gave up an empty-net goal to Henrik Zetterberg.

Adam Burish gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead 5:25 in, but Cleary tied it a few minutes later and Johan Franzen put Detroit in front 2-1 late in the second period.

Game 2 is Tuesday night in Detroit.
