Red Wings Vs. Blackhawks Final Score: Chicago Bests Rival Detroit, 3-2

The Detroit Red Wings took on their division rival Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center on Friday night. Winners of two straight, the Red Wings defeated Chicago twice on the road last year (their only wins against the Blackhawks), but couldn't even up this season's road record (9-11), falling to the Blackhawks 3-2.

Detroit scored first, but Jonathan Toews scored his 21st goal of the season to tie it at one on a penalty shot. Detroit re-took the lead in the second period on a tip in by Todd Bertuzzi off a Mike Commodore slap shot. Just over two minutes later, former Wing Marian Hossa was allowed to circle the entire Detroit zone and slap one past Jimmy Howard to tie it back up.

In the third period, Brent Seabrook scored on a one-timer from Patrick Kane 1:52 into the period to give Chicago the difference maker. Detroit had a few opportunities to tie it, including a shot hitting the post around the nine minute mark, but couldn't get anything more by Corey Crawford, who stopped 26-of-28 shots he faced.

Detroit is back on the ice tomorrow vs. St. Louis at the Joe.
