Wings Shutout Blue Jackets

By  | 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Chris Osgood made 23 saves for his 49th career shutout, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-0 on Sunday to become the first team in NHL history to top 100 points in nine straight seasons.
Osgood, struggling to find his form before the playoffs, looked like his old self in his second shutout of the season. The victory came eight days after the Blue Jackets humiliated the reigning Stanley Cup champions 8-2 on their own ice, with Osgood surrendering seven goals -- also on 23 shots.
Johan Franzen had a goal and an assist, and Marian Hossa, Niklas Kronwall and Mikael Samuelsson also scored for Detroit, the NHL leader with 101 points.
The Red Wings broke a tie with Montreal (1974-75 through 1981-82) for the NHL mark for consecutive 100-point seasons.
