Red Wings Vs. Blackhawks Final Score: Detroit Falls To Chicago, 2-1, Loses G Jimmy Howard

Sunday's game for the Detroit Red Wings was a double loss. The Chicago Blackhawks won the game, 2-1, their third win against the Red Wings this season, but the Wings were without goaltender Jimmy Howard for two periods, as well. Howard left the game after the first period and is day-to-day with a lower body injury.

Joey MacDonald did an admirable job after he went between the pipes, but the one goal he allowed was one too many. Patrick Kane's goal at 18:41 in the second period proved to be the game-winner since the Red Wings were unable to answer back with their own score over the remainder of the game. MacDonald stopped 12 of 13 shots.

The first two goals of the game came within the first 6:03 of the game. Patrick Sharp made it a 1-0 game after netting his 25th goal of the season on a power play. Niklas Kronwall tied it at 6:03 with the help of Darren Helm and Brad Stuart.

Detroit (43-20-3, 89 points) will visit the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday, March 6.
