from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 43 shots for his second shutout, the Wings killed three Vancouver power plays (two in the third period), had a good start to the game, they scored the first goal of the game, and Pius Suter ended an 11-game point-less streak with a goal.
"It was similar to Edmonton (Tuesday's 7-5 loss) where we were relentless for the majority of the game," coach Jeff Blashill said. "We hounded the puck on the forecheck, certainly we still made mistakes and breakdowns but Ned was excellent, both goalies faced real good chances and they did an outstanding job, but we've talked about being relentless and working and we did a great job of that."
Nedeljkovic's 43 saves were the most by a Wings goaltender in a shutout since Glenn Hall in 1956 (44, while Terry Sawchuk had 50 in 1959). It was his second shutout this season, but this one was crucial given the Wings' — and Nedeljkovic's own — slump.
"I felt real good," Nedeljkovic said. "It was a warm building, a lot of people in there, it was humid, but I felt real good these last few weeks. It was a combination of trying a little too hard, being a little hard on myself and not getting a few bounces here and there.
"But I felt real good out there."
