CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks trail the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 after the first period in a preseason matchup at the United Center.

Patrick Kane didn’t take long to make his presence felt in his first game of the preseason. Kane scored the Hawks' goal on a power play after a quick back pass from Jonathan Toews as Toews was heading toward the net.

The Wings scored twice in the latter portion of the period. A 5-on-3, 1:03 advantage produced the first goal and then with under a minute to play Drew Miller was left wide open in front of Corey Crawford, and he buried it. Fabian Brunnstrom scored the other goal for Detroit.

As expected, Kane played center in the opening period and held his own. He had one dynamic rush up the middle of the ice and through the defense which resulted in a good scoring chance. He didn’t have to play in his own zone very much but did get called for a hooking penalty on a back check.
