Hasek earns second straight shutout as Red Wings defeat Predators 2-0

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.

Lidstrom got a power-play goal 1:28 into the third period, when he put in a loose puck from the crease for his third goal.

Cleary added an empty-net goal with 1:19 remaining.

Notes: Detroit was without RW Jason Williams (concussion). ... Lidstrom will be the Grand Marshal of Detroit's "America's Thanksgiving Parade." ... Scratched for Nashville were RW Scottie Upshall and LW Darcy Hordichuk.
