Howard makes 22 saves, Red Wings blank Oilers

DETROIT (AP) - Jimmy Howard made 22 saves, and Jakub Kindl and Cory Emmerton scored in the second period to lift the Detroit Red Wings over the Edmonton Oilers 3-0 on Thursday night. Justin Abdelkader's empty-net goal put the game out of reach. Howard made 36 saves in a win Tuesday against Colorado, but coach Mike Babcock wasn't all that impressed with his team's overall performance that night. The Red Wings were sharper defensively against Edmonton and took control in the second period, when they outshot the Oilers 15-7. Detroit is 10-0-1 in its last 11 regular-season games against Edmonton. Saturday the Red Wings visit the Columbus Blue Jackets at 2 p.m. and Sunday the Blue Jackets come to the Joe at 5 p.m.
