Red Wings Vs. Blackhawks Final Score: Detroit's Winning Streak Snapped, 2-1

Marcus Kruger netted the game-winner early in the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks held on for a 2-1 victory that snapped the Detroit Red Wings' six-game winning streak on Tuesday night at the United Center.

The Red Wings opened the scoring before late-arriving fans could even straggle into the arena when Valtteri Flipula netted a power-play score just 2:22 into the first period, but Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford settled in and did not allow another goal the remainder of the way.

Jimmy Hayes knotted the score with his fifth goal of the season for Chicago 7:45 into the second period, assisted by Bryan Bickell and Duncan Keith. Kruger later put the Blackhawks on top and Crawford held off every Red Wings opportunity.

Crawford finished with 31 saves for Chicago, which won its fourth straight.

Jimmy Howard had 27 saves for Detroit.
