Kopecky-Led Blackhawks Beat Red Wings
DETROIT (AP) -- Tomas Kopecky scored twice and Corey Crawford made 36 saves, lifting the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.

Cory Emmerton scored in his NHL debut to give Detroit the lead midway through the first. Dave Bolland tied the game later in the period and Kopecky scored two times in the second against his former team to make it 3-1.

Detroit's Jimmy Howard started strong before struggling a little and finishing with 29 saves.

Troy Brouwer also scored for defending champion Chicago, which is on a 5-0-1 streak. The banged-up Red Wings have won two of their last six.

Detroit found out before the game that the New York Islanders claimed goaltender Evgeni Nabokov off waivers after he signed a one-year contract with the Red Wings.
