DETROIT -- Two goalies combined on a Detroit Red Wings shutout for the first time since the 2001-02 season, when they went on to hoist the Stanley Cup. E. J. Manuel Jersey . "Maybe its a good omen," Jimmy Howard said after finishing off a shutout that Jonas Gustavsson started in a 2-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night. Justin Abdelkader scored early in the second period and again in the final seconds after Howard made 16 saves over the final two periods and Gustavsson stopped eight shots in the first. Howard also stopped David Booths penalty shot in the second. It was the first time Detroit had a combined shutout since Oct. 27, 2001, when Manny Legace and Dominik Hasek did it in a 1-0 win at Nashville, according to STATS. Gustavsson started, but couldnt play in the second or third because of dizziness. "I guess hes fine," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. The Canucks had coach John Tortorella behind their bench and forward Henrik Sedin on the ice after both missed six games. Tortorella was suspended for 15 days by the NHL for his conduct after a brawl in a game against the Calgary Flames. Tortorella went to Calgarys locker room following the first period, which began with several fights. "Whats happened was deserved," Tortorella said. "I hope it makes me a better coach, but it certainly doesnt stop the situations Ive put a lot of other people in, especially my other coaches." Sedin had been out since he was unable to finish the Jan. 18 game against Calgary because of an upper-body injury. He and his brother, Daniel, extended their goal-scoring droughts to 16 games. That matches the longest stretch of games the Sedins have played without either one of them scoring since 2002, according to STATS. "Obviously, theyre a big part of their team," said Detroits Henrik Zetterberg, who will team up with the Sedins for Sweden at the Olympics. "If you keep them in check, you have a good chance of winning the game." The Red Wings wanted to rest Howard, who had played two straight games following a four-game absence after aggravating a left knee injury, but he was forced into action. Howard helped Detroit keep its slim lead early in the second period when he denied Booths penalty shot. "I thought our best forward was David Booth, which is good for him but not good for us," Tortorella said. The Canucks went on a power play for the fourth time 5:29 into the third period, but didnt take advantage. They had an extra skater again when Detroit had too many men on the ice with 4:37 left in the game. It turned into a 4-on-3 advantage when players from both teams were called for a penalty, but Vancouver couldnt convert. "We looked like a slow hockey team tonight," Tortorella said. "Were going to keep banging and trying to get better. ... It worries me, it really worries me." Eddie Lack, starting a second straight game in place of Roberto Luongo, made 28 saves. Lack gave up what appeared to be a soft goal, failing to stop a long shot from Abdelkader with his blocker, but helped Vancouver stay within a goal when Detroit had a 5-on-3 power play midway through the second period. Lack also made three straight stops when Darren Helm had chances to score during Vancouvers final power play, including one sprawling stop in which he dove and got some of his glove on the puck. "The way hes keeping us in games, you want to score some goals for him," Vancouvers Jannik Hansen said. "We just couldnt find a way to get it done." The Canucks pulled Lack late in the game to add an extra skater, but teammate Alexandre Burrows was called for cross-checking with 38.7 seconds left. Abdelkader sealed the win with an empty-net goal with 15.7 seconds remaining. "His confidence is growing," Babcock said. "Hes making more plays with the puck." NOTES: Vancouver acquired forward Dale Weise from Montreal and scratched him from the lineup in Detroit. ... The Red Wings recognized people from both franchises who will represent their countries at the Sochi Games, including Detroit forward Gustav Nyquist, who is replacing injured teammate Johan Franzen on Swedens roster. ... Detroits Pavel Datsyuk, who missed his 14th straight game with a lower-body injury, hopes to play a game or two before being Russias captain in Sochi.

Steve Mason, Philadelphia (4) - Mason was brilliant all night long with save after big save on Benoit Pouliot, Carl Hagelin and Derick Brassard.BOSTON -- The Bruins have signed general manager Peter Chiarelli, who built the team that reached the Stanley Cup Finals twice in three years, to a four-year contract extension that would keep him in Boston through the 2017-18 season. Chiarelli, 49, will enter his eighth season with Boston when training camp opens next month. The Bruins have qualified for the playoffs in six of his first seven years, compiling a 50-35 post-season record and winning the Stanley Cup in 2011. The Bruins will hold a press conference with Chiarelli on Friday. Boston has compiled a 291-187-62 record with Chiarelli in the front office, and has had five seasons of 90 points or more. Chiarelli will also continue on as alternate governor on the NHLs Board of Governors, the team said Thursday. He is also a member of the Team Canada management group for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Team Canada -- easily one of the favourites for Sochi -- is coming off winning gold in 2010 in Vancouver. Under Chiarelli, the Bruins have gone 291-187-62 in the regular season. The former Harvard hockey captain spent seven seasons with the Ottawa Senators, the last two as the assistant GM, before joining the Bruins in 2006. Last season, despite the departure of goaltender Tim Thomas -- whose rights he eventually traded to the New York Islanders -- Chiarelli again was creative with a roster that won the Eastern Conference. He acquired forward Jaromir Jagr late in the shortened season from the Dallas Stars, and watched a solid mix of youth and experience defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins before losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in six games in the Stanley Cup Finals. "The ending wasnt fun, and I still dont feel good about it," Chiarelli said this summer in his end-of-season press conference. Jerry Rice Jersey. "None of us feel good about it, but my job as a manager is to look at this season and this group from 30,000 feet and to evaluate and to make decisions going forward. "And at the end of the day, I can tell you that I really liked what I saw." Chiarelli then tackled a busy off-season, where he re-signed goaltender Tuukka Rask and forward Patrice Bergeron. He added free agent forward Jarome Iginla, a veteran right wing, who the Bruins nearly acquired during the season before Iginla instead accepted a deal to Pittsburgh. He also traded centres Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and defenceman Ryan Button to the Stars for a package of players, highlighted by forward Loui Eriksson. "I would expect to ice a team or build a team that would be a perennial contender every year. That doesnt change," Chiarelli said in June. "Theres a challenge with the lower (salary) cap and I think youll see that challenge throughout the league. Were no different than anyone else, but we feel confident that if we have to move a player or two or not sign somebody, we feel confident with the core we have that well be able to find players or have players in the mix already that can fill that spot." The Bruins went 28-14-6 in the shortened season and snared the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. They allowed just 109 goals -- second only to Ottawa in the Northeast Division -- and return many players who have seen action in 13 Stanley Cup Finals games since 2011. "We got a real good core," Chiarelli said this summer. "We plan to contend for a Cup again."
