Red Wings Offensive Woes Continue in Shootout Loss to Chicago

For the third consecutive game, the Detroit Red Wings managed only one goal through regulation, dropping a 2-1 shootout decision to the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday afternoon.

After a scoreless first two periods, Tomas Tatar scored the team's only goal at 2:43 of the third. Patrick Eaves took the puck behind the Chicago net with Joakim Andersson coming in from the opposite side. Andersson popped a pass out front to Tatar who snapped a shot home past Blackhawks' netminder Corey Crawford.

A late power play gave the Blackhawks the opportunity to respond. Kyle Quincey knocked down a shot by Patrick Sharp in the slot but he failed to clear the puck, with Viktor Stalberg jumping in to poke it free to Patrick Kane. Kane's wrister from the right faceoff circle beat Jimmy Howard to tie things up and force overtime.

Kane would go on to score the only goal of the shootout, slowly skating in on Howard before snapping a shot past him.

Pavel Datsyuk, Damien Brunner and Henrik Zetterberg failed to score for Detroit in the shootout. Jonathan Toews also did not score.

Howard and Crawford each finished the afternoon with 32 saves on 33 shots

The Red Wings were scoreless on two power play opportunities. Kane's goal came on one of four Chicago attempts with the extra attacker.

Notes: The Red Wings have not scored more than a goal in a game since beating the Vancouver Canucks 8-3 last Sunday.

Real smart play behind the net to get it out to Tatar and a hell of a shot.
