Mason and Detroit netminder Jimmy Howard kept the game scoreless through 65 minutes of play, with Mason stopping 45 shots and Howard making 22 saves.
No one else would score on a shootout attempt until Bertuzzi won it for the Wings.
The win gives the Red Wings 100 points in the standings for an NHL-record tenth consecutive season. It also assures them that they will finish no worse than seventh in the Western Conference.
