DETROIT, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Curtis Joseph carried a shutout into the third period and stopped 35 shots Saturday night as the Detroit Red Wings settled for a 1-1 tie with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Signed as a free agent to replace the retired Dominik Hasek, Joseph denied All-Star Alex Zhamnov on a shorthanded breakaway midway through the first period and turned aside all 24 shots over the first period.

Steve Sullivan ended Joseph's shutout bid with 16:01 left in regulation when he banked a backhander from along the goal line off the goaltender's skate and into the net.

Detroit had a chance to win, but highly touted rookie Henrik Zetterberg shot wide of an open net with 7:54 to play in the third period.

Two-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom scored the Red Wings' lone goal on a shorthanded one-timer late in the second period.
