Sun, 19 May 2013 01:01:16 GMT — Damien Brunner and Brendan Smith scored in the second period and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 Saturday in Game 2 to even their Western Conference semifinal series. It was a strong response by the Red Wings after Chicago handled them easily in the series opener, 4-1. Just as the Blackhawks did in Game 1, Detroit took control in the second period and put the game away in the third. Now, the Red Wings have a chance to take the lead when this series between Original Six rivals shifts to Detroit for Game 3 on Monday. Patrick Kane gave Chicago a 1-0 lead late in the first, but did things ever change after that. After the Red Wings took the lead in the second period, Johan Franzen and Valtteri Filppula scored in the third.
