Islanders dominate the Red Wings, 6-0
Rob Schremp posted his first two-goal game in the NHL, and Dwayne Roloson earned perhaps the easiest shutout of his career in the New York Islanders’ 6-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.
Matt Moulson started the scoring for New York only 1 minute 11 seconds in, and Schremp made it 2-0 before the first period ended.
A blatant giveaway in front by defenseman Brad Stuart set up Schremp for his second of the night, and Mark Streit beat goalie Chris Osgood during a late second-period power play to push the lead to 4-0.
Kyle Okposo scored his 10th goal 9:22 into the third, and defenseman Bruno Gervais closed the onslaught with 3:08 left to make it 6-0 for the Islanders, who have won four of five. Roloson needed to make only 16 saves for his first shutout of the season and first in 81 games. He has 24 shutouts in the NHL.
The Red Wings were shut out for the fifth time in 16 games. The 16 shots were a season low.
Detroit is still without stars Johan Franzen and Tomas Holmstrom in a season that has been full of injuries.
