DETROIT -- The Chicago Blackhawks led the Detroit Red Wings 1-0 after the first period at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday.

The Hawks got on the board when Viktor Stalberg scored on a rebound of a Patrick Sharp shot from near the point. It was Stalberg’s 22nd goal as he finishes a breakout season.

Before scoring, the Hawks earned a four-minute power play when Jimmy Hayes was high-sticked by Riley Sheahan, playing in his first NHL game. They did little with the power play, where they continue to struggle. The Wings had a power-play chance as well but failed to score.

Late in the period, the Hawks announced goalie Ray Emery had agreed to a one-year contract extension. He was set to become a free agent on July 1.
