Detroit, MI (WQLR) – After Patrick Kane’s performance on Sunday, Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard is going to have nightmares of the Blackhawk’s forward. Howard had the Blackhawks shutout for the first 57:58, but Kane’s 11th goal of the season tied the game at one and ultimately sent the Original Six rivals into overtime. After a scoreless extra frame, Kane scored the winning goal in the second round of the shootout as the Blackhawks escaped Detroit with two points and increased their NHL record of consecutive games with recording a point to start the season to 22.

It’s unfortunate that Howard will skate away from his phenomenal performance on Sunday with a loss, after the Wings net-minder made 32 saves on 33 shots.

Tomas Tatar tallied his fourth goal of the season 2:43 into the third period putting the Wings up 1-0. Joakim Andersson and Patrick Eaves recorded assists on the rookies’ goal.

The Blackhawks are now 19-0-3, and have recorded a point in 28 straight games dating back to last season

Pavel Datsyuk, Damien Brunner and Henrik Zetterberg were all unsuccessful for Detroit during the shootout.

Corey Crawford made 32 saves for Chicago.
