After finally snapping a long losing streak, the Chicago Blackhawks are now trending in the other direction and they've won three games in a row. They hope to keep it rolling against first-place Detroit on Tuesday night, but so far the Red Wings have had the better of it.
Detroit got on the board quickly with an early power play opportunity -- Valtteri Filppula scored at the 2:22-mark; it was his 17th goal of the season.
The Blackhawks had two power play opportunities in the period and they nearly tied up the game on the second one.
