Chicago Blackhawks vs. Detroit Red Wings Game 4: Live Score, Updates & Analysis

Isaac SmithAnalyst IMay 23, 2013

The Detroit Red Wings shut out the Chicago Blackhawks by a 2-0 score in Game 4 of their Western Conference semifinal series to take a 3-1 lead in the series.

The Blackhawks had every opportunity to win this game, but just couldn't beat Jimmy Howard. Jakub Kindl scored the only non-empty net goal of the game with a power-play goal in the second period.

The Red Wings took advantage of their second power play of the game, ending Chicago's consecutive penalty streak to start the playoffs on their 31st penalty kill. That was the only offense that the Red Wings would need, though Cleary added an empty-net goal in the final minute of the game to make it 2-0.

The Blackhawks are now up against the wall, facing elimination back home in Game 5 on Saturday.
