Roulette wheel with ball in nought recess, close-up

The Red Wings came up with zero again versus the Blackhawks on Wednesday night. 

Another shutout
Third in five starts for Antii
His fourth of the year

Feel bad for Detroit?
Can't score against Hawk goalies
I won't shed a tear

On Sunday in Chicago, Cristobal Huet shut down the Red Wings.  On Wednesday in Detroit it was Antii Niemi's turn.  This was the first time in 38 years that the Blackhawks shut out the Red Wings in two consecutive games.  

Despite a loss to San Jose sandwiched between the two Detroit shut outs, the Blackhaws have won four of their last six games by shutouts.  So far this season Niemi and Huet have combined for a league leading seven shut outs.
