Wings handle Senators

DETROIT — Danny DeKeyser and Henrik Zetterberg scored early in the first and third periods to help the Red Wings beat the Senators and spoil Dion Phaneuf's debut with his new team with a 3-1 win Wednesday night.

Petr Mrazek stopped 22 shots, but his bid for a second straight shutout ended with 2:24 left when Zach Smith scored.

Darren Helm restored Detroit's two-goal lead with an empty-net goal about a minute later.

Phaneuf got off to a rough start. He skated backward, swiveled his hips and fell early on one of his first shifts as the veteran defenseman failed to keep up with Gustav Nyquist.

Craig Anderson stopped Nyquist on the sequence.

The Senators acquired Phaneuf on Tuesday in a nine-player trade with the Maple Leafs. He settled in with solid play after his fall. He played the point on the power play, including early in the third period when his slap shot hit DeKeyser's right knee and sent the Detroit defenseman limping off.

RANGERS BLANK PENS: Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 shots for his third shutout of the season and 58th of his career, leading the visiting Rangers past the Penguins 3-0. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby failed to extend a career-high seven-game goal-scoring streak.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: The Blues, who have been struggling offensively with one goal or none in five of their past six games, are about to get one of their top skill players back. Left wing Jaden Schwartz was activated from injured reserve and is expected to play Friday at Florida. He has missed 49 games since fracturing his left ankle during practice on Oct. 23. He will be used only in even-strength situations for now.
