Saad has 3 points to lead Blackhawks over Wings

DETROIT (AP) — In less than two minutes, the Chicago Blackhawks did all the damage they needed to do. And then they just kept scoring.

The Blackhawks scored three goals during a span of 1:39 early in the first period and Brandon Saad and Dave Bolland finished with two goal apiece in the Chicago Blackhawks’ 7-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

“Especially these early games, it’s nice to get off to a good start,” Saad said. “We got a couple of bounces and got a couple of goals and it was nice to play with the lead.”

Jonathan Toews added a goal and two assists and Jeremy Morin and Nick Leddy, also scored for Chicago. Cory Crawford made 33 saves.

“Contributions from everybody. It certainly helps when you get a quick start like that right off the bat,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said.

Cory Emmerton scored Detroit’s goal. Jimmy Howard was pulled in favor of Jonas Gustavsson early in the second period. Gustavsson made nine saves.

Chicago led 3-0 at the end of the first period after scoring on its first three shots in a 1:39 span in the game’s first four-and-a-half minutes.

Morin, who was recalled from the minor leagues on Saturday, opened the scoring when he put one in from a goal-mouth scramble at 2:33. Saad capitalized on a breakaway off left wing to beat Howard, for his fifth goal of the season, 48 seconds later and Bolland was credited with his first goal of the game, at 4:12, when Detroit defenseman Jakub Kindl accidentally flipped the puck into his own net while trying to clear it from the crease.

“We didn’t play hockey tonight whatsoever. It’s tough when you spot them a few goals right away from the start,” Red Wings’ defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “You did a big hole for yourselves and we couldn’t find a way to get back. It was embarrassing at times.”
