Detroit Red Wings start off the weekend right by beating Chicago Blackhawks

Sharing is caring!

No matter what the records are heading into the game, it is always extra special to pick up a win over the Chicago Blackhawks and that is exactly what the Detroit Red Wings did on Friday night by picking up a 2-1 win at Little Caesars Arena.

After a scoreless first period, the Red Wings scored two-straight second-period goals (Bertuzzi and Fabbri) before Patrick Kane cut the lead to one by scoring at the 18:55 mark.

The two goals were all the Red Wings would need as Jonathan Bernier was a wall in net, stopping 32-of-33 Blackhawks’ shots.

With the win, the Red Wings are now 16-48-5 on the year, which is still good enough for last place in the NHL by a wide margin.

It has been a very difficult season for the Wings, but at least they got a split with the hated Blackhawks!
