DETROIT - Johan Franzen and Tomas Tatar both scored during Detroit's dominant second period, and the Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 on Friday night.

Franzen scored his fifth goal, with an assist from Henrik Zetterberg, at 4:49 of the second to break a 1-1 tie. Tatar added his fifth 1:10 later when he sent in a rebound of Joakim Andersson's shot. The Blackhawks were outshot 20-8 in the period.

The two-goal lead was plenty for Jimmy Howard, who stopped 25 shots for his seventh victory.

Luke Glendening put Detroit on the board six minutes in when he backhanded a rebound of Drew Miller's shot past Corey Crawford, who finished with 32 saves. Patrick Kane scored Chicago's lone goal during a power play later in the first.

Brendan Smith put the game away with an empty-net goal.
