DETROIT (AP) – Patrick Sharp had a goal and an assist, and Patrick Kane broke a tie late in the second period in the Chicago Blackhawks’ 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

Ray Emery made 23 saves to help Chicago solidify its hold on the sixth playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Niklas Kronwall scored for Detroit, 27-4-2 at home. Jimmy Howard made four saves before leaving after the first period because of a lower-body injury. Joey MacDonald stopped 12 shots in the final two periods.

Red Wings defenseman Jakub Kindl also left early in the first period because of an upper-body injury. Detroit already was without captain Nicklas Lidstrom, center Pavel Datsyuk and defenseman Jonathan Ericsson.

Lidstrom missed his third game because of a deep bone bruise in his right ankle and is expected to sit out at least one more game. Datsyuk is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, and Ericsson has a broken left wrist.
