Sharks End Road Trip on Negative Note in 3-0 Shutout Loss to Red Wings

by | Oct 22, 2016

Gustav Nyquist scored a pair of goals, Andreas Athanasiou added a third goal in the mix, and the Detroit Red Wings shutout the San Jose Sharks 3-0 at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday night.

The Sharks played the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena one last time.

Each team killed four minutes of penalties in the first period — Thomas Vanek was called for interference, Joe Pavelski was called for interference, Brenden was called for boarding, and Darren Helm was called for delay of game with a faceoff violation.

The Red Wings outshot the Sharks 11-6 through 20 minutes of scoreless hockey.

Gustav Nyquist gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead at 4:14 of the second period with a wrist shot from the left circle which beat Martin Jones top shelf on his short side.

Nyquist made it 2-0 Red Wings at 15:10 with his second goal of the night and his third of the season.

Marc Edouard-Vlasic went to the box for tripping at 17:31. Then, Nyquist was called for holding, which led to 27 seconds of 4-on-4 hockey.

Brent Burns’ shot hit the goal post with less than a second left, but the referee declared no goal. The Red Wings led the Sharks 2-0 after 40 minutes. They continued to outwork their opponent, outshooting them 20-18.

Thomas Vanek made a tremendous pass to set up Andreas Athanasiou, who blasted a slap shot from the left circle over the glove of Jones to make it 3-0 Red Wings at 6:05 of the third period.

Logan Couture had a couple of close chances, but didn’t puck the puck into the net. The Sharks were shut out by the Red Wings 3-0 in their final regular season meeting.

Jimmy Howard finished with 30 saves for the Red Wings. Martin Jones made 29 saves for the Sharks.

The Sharks return to action Tuesday night when they host the Anaheim Ducks at 7:00 p.m. PST.
