CHICAGO (AP) -- Valtteri Filppula's second goal of the game snapped a third period tie, and the Detroit Red Wings spoiled the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup banner raising celebration with a 3-2 victory over Chicago on Saturday night.

Filppula exploited two breakdowns and scored on the power-play at 7:01 of the third, putting Detroit ahead 3-2.

Todd Bertuzzi had a goal and assist for the Red Wings (2-0).
