Jonathan Bernier stopped shot after shot, Wade Davis Jerseykeeping the Detroit Red Wings off the scoreboard.

Bernier made 38 saves in his 12th career shutout, leading the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 1-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.

It marked the Maple Leafs' second shutout of the Red Wings in the last 30 years. last time was Curtis Joseph's 3-0 victory on Dec. 6, 2000, in Detroit.

''I felt great from the get-go,'' Bernier said. ''We felt we dominated this game from the start and we wanted it.''

Toronto's Michael Grabner in on a breakaway and was hauled down by Danny DeKeyser with 29.5 seconds left in the second. Petr Mrazek made the save, but as Grabner slid into the crease, the puck went into the net.

After a review, it was ruled that the puck crossed the line in a legal fashion before the net was displaced. It was Grabner's first goal since Jan. 2.

''I saw the puck out of the corner of my eye go in and I knew Yu Darvish Jerseythat I didn't touch the goalie,'' Grabner said. ''I didn't feel it hit me or anything. I got a lucky bounce.''

Mrazek made 26 saves for the Red Wings, who had won two in a row. Detroit (34-24-11) is eighth in the Eastern Conference with 79 points.

Babcock, who coached the the previous 10 seasons, understands the position they're in.

''Detroit's important for me,'' Babcock said. ''For anybody who's involved here, they want to keep getting in the playoffs. So I'm cheering for them every night that they don't play us.''

Despite getting 38 shots, the Wings lamented the failure of their power play, which went 0 for 3.
