The Chicago Blackhawks set a franchise record with their sixth straight victory to begin a season.

Duncan Keith had a first-period power play goal for the Chicago Blackhawks and Johan Franzen added a third period goal to even the score for the Detroit Red Wings, but Nick Leddy scored the game-winner in overtime.

Regardless of allegiances of fans in this game, most fans should agree that this game was a sloppy one.

The Red Wings had some terrible passing which led to them going scoreless on six chances with the man advantage.

The Blackhawks looked tired and passive for most of regulation. They had just a few quality scoring chances, registering only 27 shots on goal.

Nick Leddy's overtime winner went off of Damien Brunner's stick, making it difficult for goalie Jimmy Howard to pick up.


Chicago Blackhawks 2, Detroit Red Wings 1. Final in overtime.
