Opinion Blackhawks Facing Ultimate Test as Bye Week Begins

PITTSBURGH — Evgeni Malkin and the Penguins returned from their bye week and picked up where they left off. Don Wright, USA TODAY Sports Pittsburgh Penguins' Brian Dumoulin can't get his stick on a rebound in front of Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard in the second period in Pittsburgh, Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018. The Wings answered a little over 10 minutes later with Abdelkader's power-play goal.

Malkin had two goals and two assists, and the Penguins beat the Red Wings 4-1 on Saturday for their third consecutive victory.

Dominic Turgeon was recalled by the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday to cover for the injuries to Justin Abdelkader and Darren Helm.

The Detroit Red Wings look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 12 games.

Ahead of this game, I talked to fellow FanSided writer and Red Wings expert Dan Garza about the Red Wings' season so far, and what he expects to see on Sunday morning. Defensively, the Chicago Blackhawks are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 82.7 percent of their opponents power plays. "Coming back from a break, both teams - they played the right way". The Wings went 1-for-7 on power plays Saturday.

The Red Wings still aren't having much success on the road, and they're on the end of a back to back here, having to play an extremely early game on the road. Anthony Mantha leads Detroit with 14 goals, Dylan Larkin has 28 assists and Henrik Zetterberg has 92 shots on goal.

It's the second straight game the power play has been a big letdown - it went 0-for-4 against Tampa Bay on Sunday, and has produced just two goals the last 27 opportunities, spanning eight games. Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist, and rookie Tristan Jarry stopped 29 shots in his third straight start while Matt Murray is home in Canada tending to a personal family matter. Kessel sent a pass from the boards toward the middle, and Malkin converted from between the circles. The Wings were outshot 16-9 in the second period despite spending 5:41 of it on a man-advantage.

Kessel matched that with a power-play goal of his own with Crosby and Malkin collecting the assists. Crosby lifted Frans Nielsen's stick and whipped a wrist shot into the net.
