Wings beat Chicago, lose to Waterloo

Defenseman Chris Anderson scored his first goal of the year on an assist from Chris Walsh to give the Wings a quick 1-0 at the end of one period. There was no scoring until early in the third when Bryan Marshall sealed the win with his 10th goal of the year. Marshall now is 2 points away from becoming the Wings all-time leading scorer. Justin Tobe stopped 32 shots for his 10th win and 1st shutout of the year.
On Saturday evening, the Wings traveled to Waterloo and went home with a tough 3-1 loss. The Black Hawks scored 3 power play goals in a 7-minute span over the 2nd and 3rd periods and the Wings couldnt overcome the deficit. Tomas Klempa tallied his 8th goal of the year to cut the lead to 3-1 but the Wings could not come closer. Tobe stopped 35 of 38 shots in the loss.
