Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Holmstrom scored in the first period, and Chris Osgood finished with his first shutout of the NHL season to give the Detroit Red Wings a 2-0 win over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday.

Osgood made 29 saves on Tuesday. He also got help from the posts behind him to prevent a goal in both the first and second periods for the 50th shutout of his career.

Tim Thomas had 24 saves for Boston, who fell under .500 with their third loss in four games.


At Anaheim, California, Pascal Dupuis scored the go-ahead goal with 10:47 to play as Pittsburgh tied an NHL record with its seventh straight road victory to open the season.

Michael Rupp, Kris Letang and Alex Goligoski also scored and Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves for the Penguins, who matched the seven season-opening road victories of the 1940 Toronto Maple Leafs, the 1985 Philadelphia Flyers and the 2005 Detroit Red Wings.

New Jersey are also 7-0 on the road so far this season.

Corey Perry scored two goals for the Ducks, who have lost six of seven.


At Montreal, Colby Armstrong scored 13:14 into the third period as Atlanta earned its first regulation win in Montreal in over five years.

Rich Peverley had a goal and two assists, including his third point of the game with a cross-crease setup pass on Pavel Kubina’s power-play goal that gave the Thrashers a 4-3 edge 4:10 into the third period.

Tomas Plekanec of the Czech Republic drew Montreal even at 4 with his fourth goal at 12:40.
