San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - Antti Niemi posted 27 saves to notch his
second shutout in as many days, as the San Jose Sharks blanked the Detroit Red
Wings, 2-0, on Thursday at HP Pavilion.
Niemi stopped 22 shots in Wednesday's 4-0 win against Anaheim, becoming the
first goaltender in Sharks history to record back-to-back shutouts on
Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns each scored once for the Sharks, who have won
three straight and four of their last five to move two points ahead of the St.
Louis Blues for the seventh spot in the Western Conference.
Jimmy Howard allowed both goals on 24 shots, as the Red Wings saw their three-
game winning streak come to an end.
