DETROIT — After scoring 39 goals in their first eight games, the San Jose Sharks proved they can play pretty well defensively, too.

Logan Couture scored in the shootout and San Jose 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.

"We scored a lot of goals in our first eight games. We're not going to keep scoring like that," Couture said.

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