The Detroit Red Wings were shut out by the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night, 3-0.

The Wings were without top forwards Tyler Bertuzzi and Dylan Larkin. Bertuzzi cannot travel to games played in Canada due to his unvaccinated status. Larkin was out due to personal reasons, the team announced earlier Tuesday without elaboration.

Bertuzzi is returning from offseason back surgery and has 9 points in seven games for Detroit this season. Larkin, also returning from an injury this past season, 8 points in eight games this season.

The Red Wings next travel to Boston for a game against the Bruins on Thursday.
