Petr Mrazek made 27 saves for his second shutout of the season to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday at United Center.

Chicago (22-17-6) head coach Joel Quenneville characterized the loss as “brutal” in his postgame press conference. The Hawks enter their five-day break one point behind Dallas for the Western Conference’s second wild card spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
