DETROIT - Shootouts have been good to the Winnipeg Jets this season.

Devin Setoguchi and Andrew Ladd scored in the shootout to give the Jets a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

The Jets are 4-1 in shootouts this season, including Sunday's 5-4 win over San Jose.

"It gets a little tiring playing overtime games but the shootouts are going for us," said centre Bryan Little, who scored the game's first goal.

Ladd is 5-for-5 in shootouts this season and his past three have been game winners.

Zach Bogosian also scored for Winnipeg in regulation. Ondrej Pavelec made 41 saves.

"Pavelec really put his best foot forward in the game to help us win the game," Jets coach Claude Noel said.

Pavel Datsyuk scored twice for Detroit, which lost its sixth straight at home (0-1-5). Jimmy Howard stopped 19 shots. Daniel Alfredsson scored in the shootout.

"We didn't win but I thought we played good. I liked our game today, start to finish. We made some mistakes," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said.

"... But I liked our penalty kill, I liked our power play, I liked our game. I feel real good. I know we'd like to get the second point, but I liked the way we played. To me it's going in the right direction. It's real positive game for us."

Datsyuk's second power-play goal of the game, with 6:49 remaining in the third, tied it 2-2.

He stuffed one in from the side of the net for his ninth of the season. The goal came just after a Red Wings' two-man advantage came to an end.

Detroit outshot Winnipeg 16-2 in the third period.

"They came hard and we made mistakes to take some penalties on the power play." Pavelec said.

Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg talked about the team's bad stretch.

"It's tough when we don't get two points," he said. "We did a lot of good things and today I think we played solid defence, created enough chances to win and Howie (Howard) played good enough to win the game, but we can't find a way to go all the way. It's frustrating. It's tough. We want to win, but right now we can't find a way."

Bogosian gave Winnipeg a 2-1 lead with 9:13 left in the third period. He took a pass in the slot from centre Olli Jokinen and moved to his right, made a move and put a shot past Howard from the right circle.

It was Bogosian's first goal of the season.

Little opened the scoring 7:10 into the game with his 11th goal. He put in a one-time shot from the inside edge of the left circle off the rush on a cross-ice pass from Blake Wheeler.

Datsyuk's power-play goal with 5:16 left in the first period tied the game at 1. Datsyuk scored from the bottom of the right circle along the goal line after taking a cross-ice pass from Zetterberg. It was his eighth goal.

NOTES: Detroit LW Johan Franzen returned after missing four games with an upper-body injury/illness. ... Red Wings' RW Daniel Cleary was a healthy scratch. He had only a goal and two assists in 18 games. ... Winnipeg C Bryan Little has five points (three goals and two assists) in his past three games. ... Red Wings adviser to hockey operations Chris Chelios was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday night.
