Calgary Flames blank Detroit Red Wings, 3-0
DETROIT (AP) — Jacob Markstrom stopped all 33 shots Detroit took Thursday night in the Calgary Flames’ 3-0 victory over the Red Wings.
Markstrom recorded his ninth career shutout in his 12th season in the NHL. He’d allowed seven goals with an .881 save percentage in Calgary’s first two games, but the rangy goalie had an answer for every challenge in this game.
The Flames, who never trailed, took control of the game midway through the second period.
Detroit ended up with a 33-28 advantage in shots. Fourteen of those came in the second period, especially with two power-play opportunities. Defenseman Moritz Seider had one of Detroit’s better chances came when he fired a point-blank shot right into Markstrom’s midsection.
