Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Justin Abdelkader tallied two goals as the
Detroit Red Wings spoiled coach John Tortorella's return to the Vancouver
bench after a six-game suspension with a 2-0 victory over the Canucks.
After allowing six goals in an overtime loss to Washington the day before,
Jimmy Howard combined with Jonas Gustavsson for a shutout. Gustavsson turned
aside eight shots before exiting after the first period due to dizziness.
Howard made 16 saves the rest of the way, and Abdelkader scored early in the
second period and on an open net for the Red Wings, who posted to their second
win in three games.
Eddie Lack made 28 saves, but his effort was not enough for the Canucks, who
dropped their fourth straight game.
