DETROIT As far as statement games go, the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks basically said the same things they've been saying all season.
For the Wings, they showed they're still a work in progress.
For the Blackhawks, they showed they're a cohesive group clicking on all cylinders.
The Blackhawks came into the game on a record-setting points pace to open the season, having gotten at least one point in 21 straight games.
Now you can make that 22 straight, with Sunday's 2-1 shootout victory.
The Blackhawks tied the game at 1 with 2:02 to play on Patrick Kane's power-play goal. Then Kane ended up with the winner in the second round of the shootout.
"Its just pretty amazing," Kane said. "Weve talked about the resiliency of this team for the past couple of weeks or the past month. It seems likes we just keep finding ways to keep ourselves in the game or find a way to win it at the end."
The Wings are now 4-4-4 in one-goal games while the Blackhawks are an incredible 12-0-...
