The Hawks added to a 3-0 first intermission advantage with a power play goal by Marian Hossa early in the second period. Brent Seabrook sent a pass from behind his own net to Hossa who was standing at the Wings' blue line. The puck deflected off defenseman Brad Stuart’s skate and right to Hossa who went in alone on goalie Jimmy Howard for his 25th goal of the year.
Detroit got on the board very late in the middle period when Drew Miller tipped in a pass off a Wings’ rush.
Corey Crawford has had to make only 15 saves through 40 minutes, allowing just the one goal. The Hawks are playing one of their best games in weeks.
