Detroit Red Wings shut out 4-0 by visiting Chicago Blackhawks
DETROIT (AP) — Malcolm Subban made 29 saves for his second shutout of the season, helping the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-0 on Saturday night.
Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist for Chicago, which was coming off a 4-1 loss to last-place Detroit on Thursday night. Alex DeBrincat, Wyatt Kalynuk and Pius Suter also scored, and Vinnie Hinostroza had three assists.
The Blackhawks are trying to catch Nashville for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Central Division. They got a big lift from Subban, who turned in his third career shutout while starting goaltender Kevin Lankinen got the night off for rest.
Jonathan Bernier stopped 23 shots for Detroit, which had won a season-high three straight.
The Red Wings were 0 for 6 on the power play, including a four-minute power play in the first period and a 1:07 5-on-3 advantage in the third.
“I would say that the difference in the game was our power play was brutal,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said.
