Hasek has not allowed a goal in 153 minutes and 28 seconds. It gave Hasek 71 career shutouts. He whitewashed the Edmonton Oilers 3-0 Wednesday night.

Robert Lang, Nicklas Lidstrom and Dan Cleary scored for Detroit (11-4-1), which won its eighth straight. Pavel Datsyuk had two assists.

The shutout snapped a five-game winning streak for Nashville (9-4-1), and its run of 10 straight games (9-0-1) with at least a point.

Lang opened the scoring 8:46 into the game when he beat Tomas Vokoun on a backhand shot from the bottom of the right circle. It was Lang’s fifth goal of the season.
