Chicago — Cristobal Huet made 20 saves for his second straight shutout, and Duncan Keith had a goal and an assist to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to their fourth victory in a row, 3-0, over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.

Brian Campbell and Dustin Byfuglien also scored to help Chicago move back into first place in the Central Division. Detroit, shut out for the fourth time in its last 15 games, has lost two straight.

Huet got his third shutout this season, 23rd overall and first against Detroit.

On Detroit's two best chances, Huet made a glove save on Ville Leino late in the first period, and a pad save on Brad Stuart midway through the second.

Detroit's Chris Osgood stopped 32 shots.

The Red Wings played without eight regulars, including leading scorer Henrik Zetterberg, who has a shoulder injury.
