DETROIT -- Jonas Hiller made 23 saves for his third career playoff shutout and Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-0 on Saturday at Joe Louis Arena in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Anaheim, the second seed, takes a 2-1 series lead into Game 4 on Monday night at Joe Louis Arena.

Nick Bonino, Emerson Etem and Matt Beleskey also scored for Anaheim.

Jimmy Howard stopped 25 shots for Detroit, which is the seventh seed.

Detroit's Justin Abdelkader received a five-minute charging penalty and a game misconduct after a hit on Anaheim defenseman Toni Lydman with 4:49 left in the second period. Lydman did not return, and the team said he was under evaluation.

Abdelkader was playing on a line with Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg and has been one of the Red Wings' most effective players in the series. He scored the first goal of Detroit's 5-4 overtime win in Anaheim in Game 2. Damien Brunner replaced Abdelkader on the line in the third period.

It didn't take long for the Ducks to capitalize after the second-period penalty as Bonino got the game's first goal just 18 seconds into that power play by putting in Corey Perry's rebound for Bonino's second goal of the playoffs.

Getzlaf made it 2-0 with a shorthanded goal 6:33 into the third period. He stole the puck from Brunner in the slot area, beat Howard's diving poke check attempt and slid the puck into the empty net with a second left in Luca Sbisa's interference penalty. It was Getzlaf's second goal of the playoffs.

Etem added a goal at 8:04 of the third and Beleskey scored a 5-on-3 power-play goal with 6:26 left.

Each team had a 5-on-3 power-play opportunity in the scoreless first period.

Hiller stopped Johan Franzen on a breakaway 8:01 into the game and Datsyuk hit the goal post with 8:15 left in the opening period.

NOTES: Detroit rookie defenseman Brian Lashoff replaced fellow rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser in the lineup. DeKeyser suffered a broken right thumb in Game 2 in a collision with Anaheim's Kyle Palmieri and is out for the season. Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said the team would not have made the playoffs without DeKeyser, who played the last 11 regular-season games after signing as a free agent out of Western Michigan University. Lashoff hasn't played in a month. ... Anaheim defenseman Lucas Sbisa made his series debut. He replaced Sheldon Souray in the lineup. ... Detroit forward Mikael Samuelsson replaced Todd Bertuzzi in the lineup and on the fourth line with Cory Emmerton and Patrick Eaves. Samuelsson, who missed all but four games during the season, also played the right point on the second power-play unit.
