Detroit trounce Canucks on a two-goalie shutout

RARE ON ICE:It is not often that two goaltenders get to play in the same game and the last time that two ’keepers combined for a shutout was in October 2001

AP, DETROIT, Michigan

Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves for his league-leading 30th win. Anderson turned aside 46 shots in a hard-luck loss.

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who leads the NHL with 75 points, was held without a point and has not scored a goal in five games, his longest drought since a seven-game slump earlier this season.


In Newark, New Jersey, Ryan O’Reilly scored a power-play goal 28 seconds into overtime as Colorado rallied to beat New Jersey.

The Avalanche tied the game with 1:47 left in regulation on a goal by P.A. Parenteau, after they pulled goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere with 2:30 remaining.

Devils defenseman Andy Greene was called for a penalty shortly after Parenteau’s goal and the man advantage carried into overtime. O’Reilly ended it by tipping Matt Duchene’s pass by goalie Cory Schneider for his 21st of the season, giving Colorado their fourth straight win.

It marked the third straight game in which New Jersey has given up a late goal to force overtime.

The Devils have lost their past two.

Ryan Carter scored in the first period for New Jersey.

In other play, it was:

‧ Flyers 5, Sharks 2

‧ Oilers 3, Sabres 2
