[Recap] Wings beat Chicago in shootout, 6-5

Tonight's game was a nail-biter finish as the game went into overtime and then the shootout. Marian Hossa just teed it off and his hard slap shot won the game for Detroit to start off their road trip on a 6-5 victory. If you include the game-winning shootout goal, Hossa has five goals in the last four games.

Personally, it was my favorite game of the season with tons of offense. The number of Detroit penalties (8) was a bit frustrating, but the Wings were able to fight back and get the two points over a division opponent. With all the offense, it was a great game for numerous players. Niklas Kronwall, Jiri Hudler, and Marian Hossa all had a goal and two assists (not including the GWG, which won't be included in stats because it came in the shootout).

There were just too many goals for me to describe each one, but please visit the Game Thread from tonight's action and you can see my remarks on each goal.

The only bad news of the night: power forward Johan Franzen left the game early in the second period with a knee injury. He did not return. The severity of his injury is unknown.

The Wings will play on Monday evening in LA.
