Froese scores 2 for Blackhawks in defending Stanley Cup champs' 4-3 win over Red Wings

DETROIT - Byron Froese scored his second goal 3:25 into the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks held on for a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in a preseason game Sunday.

Joakim Nordstrom and Garret Ross also scored for Chicago and Corey Crawford made 30 saves.

Tomas Tatar scored twice for Red Wings (2-3-0), Jonathan Ericsson added a goal and Gustav Nyquist had three assists. Jimmy Howard stopped 16 of 20 shots before being replaced by Jared Coreau early in the third period. Coreau made four saves.

Tatar opened the scoring 7:29 into the game and Froese answered 1:49 later. Nordstrom's tally came with 2:54 left in the first.

Ross and Froese scored less than a minute apart early in the third.

Tatar got his second goal, on the power play, with 7:02 left and Ericsson's goal came with 41 seconds to go.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
