Helm's shot and Gustavsson's stop in shootout lifts Red Wings to 5-4 win over Blackhawks

DETROIT - Darren Helm scored on Detroit's sixth attempt in the shootout and Jonas Gustavsson stopped Andrew Shaw's shot, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks faced Detroit for the first time since beating them in overtime in Game 7 of their second-round series last year to complete a comeback from a 3-1 deficit.

Chicago captain Jonathan Toews scored on his team's first attempt in the shootout and Patrick Sharp scored on the second before Patrick Kane was stopped with a chance to win the game.

Gustavsson, playing for the injured Jimmy Howard, made 31 saves in his first game in nearly a month.

Corey Crawford gave up four goals on the first 17 shots he faced and finished with 27 saves for the Blackhawks.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
