DETROIT (AP) — Mike Modano scored on his first shot with his hometown team 24 seconds after Johan Franzen’s goal early in the first period and the Detroit Red Wings went on to beat the Anaheim Ducks 4-0 on Friday night in the season opener for both teams.

Jimmy Howard made 21 saves for his fourth career shutout. Pavel Datsyuk and Dan Cleary scored in the second period

Modano signed with the Red Wings in August after the Dallas Stars decided they didn’t want him for a 21st season. The Livonia, Mich., native leads all U.S.-born NHL players with 558 goals and 1,360 points.

The 40-year-old Modano leads all active players with 23 points in season-opening games.

Anaheim’s Jonas Hiller had a shaky start and finished with 39 saves.
