DETROIT -- Corey Crawford stopped Henrik Zetterberg on the Detroit Red Wings' final attempt in a shootout to seal a 2-1 win for the Chicago Blackhawks today at Joe Louis Arena.
Chicago has yet to lose a game in regulation this season, and has earned at least one point in its first 22 games of the season (19-0-3). Patrick Kane scored the game-winner in the shootout for the Blackhawks.
Tomas Tatar gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead at 2:43 of the third when he took Joakim Andersson's feed from behind the goal and beat goalie Crawford (32 saves).
But with 2:02 left, Kane's power-play goal tied the game at 1-1 and ultimately guaranteed that Chicago would earn at least a point.
Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard made 32 saves for the Red Wings, who continue a three-game homestand Tuesday against Colorado.
