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 don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
