DETROIT — Ville Husso made 26 saves, and the Detroit Red Wings snapped the New York Islanders’ five-game win streak with a 3-0 victory.
Husso’s shutout was his second this season and fifth of his career.
The Red Wings had two power plays and a 13-7 advantage in shots on goal in the first period but it ended scoreless.
Detroit was awarded a 5-on-3 advantage in the second, and this time it capitalized. Kubalik set up Raymond, who was parked near the goalpost. He lifted a shot over Varlamov’s right pad for his fourth goal.
The Islanders had allowed just three power-play goals coming into the day.
Adam Erne cleared the puck out of his zone, setting up Suter’s breakaway goal at 12:51 of the second. It was the first short-handed goal allowed by the Islanders this season.
The Red Wings killed off two penalties in the first seven minutes of the third. Husso made a sliding stop against Mathew Barzal with 12 minutes left.
Kubalik scored his fifth goal with a wrist shot from the left circle with 9:47 remaining.
