DETROIT (AP) - Logan Couture scored in the shootout and the San Jose Sharks beat the Detroit Red Wings 1-0 on Monday night.

The Sharks (8-0-1) are the NHL's last team without a regulation loss.

Each goalie got a shutout for not allowing a goal in 65 minutes.

Antti Niemi - who got his 24th career shutout - made 24 saves for San Jose and Jimmy Howard, who earned his 17th shutout, stopped 27 shots.

It was Niemi's third shutout against Detroit. He also stopped Todd Bertuzzi on Detroit's final shootout attempt with a spectacular pad save.

It was the first game of a four-game Eastern road swing for San Jose.
