Two Red Wings goalies combined on a shutout for the first time since Oct. 27, 2001, when Manny Legace and Dominik Hasek did it in a 1-0 win at Nashville, according to STATS.

Gustavsson started and stopped all eight shots he faced in the first period, but didn’t return to play because of dizziness. Howard had 16 saves and stopped David Booth on a second-period penalty shot.

The Canucks had coach John Tortorella behind their bench and forward Henrik Sedin on the ice after both missed six games.

Tortorella was suspended for 15 days by the NHL for his conduct after a brawl in a game against the Calgary Flames. Tortorella went to Calgary’s locker room following the first period, which began with several fights.

Sedin had been out since he was unable to finish the Jan. 18 game against Calgary because of an upper-body injury.

BLACKHAWKS 5, KINGS 3

LOS ANGELES • Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist, Nick Leddy had a goal and an assist, and Chicago snapped its recent slump with a victory over struggling Los Angeles.

Marcus Kruger scored the tiebreaking goal on a double deflection in the second period for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who had lost five of six.

Bryan Bickell also scored and Corey Crawford made 31 saves as Chicago swept the three-game season series between last season’s Western Conference finalists.

Anze Kopitar had a goal and two assists in Los Angeles’ highest-scoring performance since Jan. 21. Drew Doughty and Tyler Toffoli also scored, and Jonathan Quick stopped 25 shots in the Kings’ ninth loss in 10 games.

Chicago pulled within three points of Anaheim for the overall NHL lead.

BLUE JACKETS 4, DUCKS 2

ANAHEIM, Calif. • Sergei Bobrovsky made 34 saves, Nick Foligno scored twice in the third period and Columbus also got goals from Ryan Johansen and R.J. Umberger in a victory over Anaheim.

The Blue Jackets are 11-0-3 since Jan. 6, a stretch that began with a franchise-record, eight-game winning streak. Bobrovsky, last season’s Vezina Trophy winner, is 10-2-0 with a 2.17 goals-against average in his last 12 starts after missing 14 games because of a groin strain.

Mathieu Perreault and Ryan Getzlaf scored for the Ducks, and Frederik Andersen stopped 29 shots.

The Ducks are 4-5-0 since Jan. 15 and have two games left before the Olympic break.
