Frolik puts Hawks up 1-0
Patrick Kane pulled off his best Pavel Datsyuk impression to set the Blackhawks up for the first goal of the game.
 
Kane curled around the Red Wings net and stripped the puck from Detroit defenseman Brad Stuart in the corner. Stuart fell to the ice and Kane got control of the puck, waited and found Michael Frolik in the high slot. Frolik wasted no time ripping a shot past Jimmy Howard's glove and into the net 5:18 into the second period to give the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead.
Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
