CHICAGO (AP) — Patrick Kane scored his 38th goal on the first shot of the game and Corey Crawford made 33 saves, helping the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Sunday.
Artem Anisimov and Duncan Keith each had a power-play goal as Chicago won for the third time in four games, including a 5-2 victory at Detroit on Wednesday. The Blackhawks went 2 for 3 with the man advantage and have at least one power-play goal in each of their last four games. Jonathan Toews also scored.
The season-high crowd of 22,247 had just started its usual derisive Detroit chant when Kane skated up the right side and beat Petr Mrazek with a wrist shot under the goaltender’s glove just 21 seconds into the game. Kane’s eighth goal in his last 13 games ran his NHL-best point total to a career-high 89.
Gustav Nyquist had Detroit’s goal.
