Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Darren Helm scored the game-winner in the sixth round of the shootout, as the Detroit Red Wings claimed a 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday at Joe Louis Arena.
After Tomas Tatar came up empty to open the shootout, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Eaves, Patrick Sharp and Todd Bertuzzi each scored in succession to keep it going.
Following misses from the next five shooters, Helm ripped a quick shot under Corey Crawford's pads and Jonas Gustavsson denied Andrew Shaw at the other end to secure the victory for the Red Wings.
Gustav Nyquist notched a goal and an assist, while Eaves, Tatar and Kyle Quincey each scored once for the Red Wings, who exacted a measure of revenge for last year's loss to Chicago in the Western Conference Semifinals.
Gustavsson stopped 31 shots in the victory, Detroit's second in its last three games.
Sharp, Shaw, Marcus Kruger and Marian Hossa each lit the lamp once for Chicago, which had a two-game win streak snapped.
Crawford allowed four goals on 31 shots in defeat.
