'Hawks Squeak Past Wings in Shootout Thriller

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings


Tomas Tatar scored early in the third to put Detroit up 1-0, but Patrick Kane scored for the Hawks with 2:02 left and then again in a shootout to win it for Chicago. For 65 minutes, today's game against the Blackhawks had fans on the edge of their seats. It was uptempo, fast-paced, and filled with big hits and big saves from both teams. Jimmy Howard was a brick wall today, making one acrobatic save after another, with fans chanting "How-ard, How-ard!" throughout the game. The Wings took the paint off the crossbar a few times, but Corey Crawford was simply outstanding, and the Wings just couldn't put one more past him. The Wings earned one point to move into sixth in the West.
