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.

  3. Rays journal: Jumbo Diaz falters after getting within a strike of ending rally

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

    It was refreshing to see RHP Jacob Faria take the blame after the loss even though he gave the Rays a chance to win. Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
