Miikka Kiprusoff made 40 saves for his second shutout of the season and 32nd overall, leading the Calgary Flames to a 3-0 victory over the slumping Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.

Detroit hasn't scored in 153 minutes 22 seconds. The Red Wings have been shut out in consecutive games for the first time since December 2001 and the first time at home since 1977. On Wednesday night, they lost 2-0 to Atlanta.

Jamie Lundmark and Olli Jokinen each had a goal and an assist, Nigel Dawes also scored, and Jarome Iginla had two assists.

Chris Osgood stopped 14 shots for Detroit.

The Red Wings have lost five of their last six games and have lost four in a row at Joe Louis Arena for the first time in almost two years.

Lundmark opened the scoring at 28 seconds on the game's first shot, putting in a one-time shot from the lip of the crease for his first goal of the season.
