Blackhawks Vs. Red Wings Final Score: Chicago Earns 2-1 Victory Over Detroit

Don't look now, but the Chicago Blackhawks are surging. Just days ago, these same 'Hawks were on a nine-game losing streak, but Chicago has since reeled off four straight victories, the latest being a 2-1 win at the United Center over the rival Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. Chicago's win ends Detroit six-game winning streak and pushes the 'Hawks to 33-21-7 with 73 points. Detroit falls to 41-18-2 with 84 points.

The second period started 1-1, but Marcus Kruger beat Detroit's Jimmy Howard just two minutes into the third to give Chicago the lead. Kruger's seventh goal of the year was set-up by teammates Andrew Brunette and Jimmy Hayes. Hayes would end as the No. 1 star of the game at the United Center after the rookie scored his fifth goal of the year to tie the game at one in the second.

Detroit out-shot Chicago 32-29.
