Byron Froese scored twice and Corey Crawford made 30 saves to lead the Chicago Blackhawks past the Detroit Red Wings, 4-3, at Joe Louis Arena.

Tomas Tatar scored twice for the Red Wings and Gustav Nyquist had three assists, but the Blackhawks doubled their lead with two goals in 56 seconds early in the third period, highlighted by Froese's second tally at 3:25.

"I thought Tatar has been really good and I thought Gus got better here as it's gone on, which is important," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "Their job is to put as much pressure on the coach and general manager as they possibly can to be here. That's all you can ask a kid to do, and they're doing that.''

Joakim Nordstrom and Garret Ross also scored for the Blackhawks and center Brad Mills was a plus-3.

Jimmy Howard started in goal for Detroit and allowed four goals on 20 shots. He was relieved in the third period by Jared Coreau after Froese made it 4-1. Coreau stopped all four shots he faced.
