 PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 34 shots for his second shutout in 11 days and the Colorado Avalanche edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 on Monday night.
Gabriel Landeskog scored the game's only goal 5:26 into the second period as Colorado improved to 8-1, the best start in franchise history.
The game was billed as a fight for bragging rights between Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby and Colorado rookie Nathan MacKinnon. The former No. 1 picks both are from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia in Canada.
Instead, Giguere stole the show. Pittsburgh went 0 for 7 on the power play and lost for the first time at home despite outshooting the Avalanche 34-14.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 13 shots for the Penguins (7-2).
SHARKS 1, RED WINGS 0, SO
DETROIT (AP) - Logan Couture scored in the shootout and San Jose beat Detroit.
The Sharks (8-0-1) are the NHL's last team without a regulation loss.
Each goalie got a shutout for not allowing a goal in 65 minutes.
Antti Niemi - who got his 24th career shutout - made 24 saves for San Jose and Jimmy Howard, who earned his 17th shutout, stopped 27 shots.
It was Niemi's third shutout against Detroit. He also stopped Todd Bertuzzi on Detroit's final shootout attempt with a spectacular pad save.
It was the first game of a four-game Eastern road swing for San Jose.
