Bernier, Red Wings shut out hapless Senators

Jonathan Bernier turned aside all 35 shots he faced Saturday as the visiting Detroit Red Wings skated to their fifth win in seven outings, a 2-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators.Bernier secured his 17th career shutout and first this season by registering his first win since a 38-save performance in a 4-1 victory at Carolina on Dec. 20. The 30-year-old had permitted 16 goals while losing each of his next four starts before shutting down league-worst Ottawa, which has dropped four in a row.Defenseman Danny DeKeyser scored in his second straight contest and Darren Helm tallied in his 600th career game for the Red Wings, who defeated the Senators for the first time in three meetings this season.Detroit accomplished the feat without Dylan Larkin, who missed the contest with a strained oblique sustained Friday in a 3-2 overtime win over Toronto. Coach Jeff Blashill told reporters prior to the Saturday game that it could be a one- to two-week absence for Larkin, who leads the team in goals (22), points (49) and average ice time (21:54).Craig Anderson finished with 19 saves for the Senators, who fell to 2-7-2 in the latter half of back-to-back contests this season.
