The Blackhawks looked way out of sorts with Marian Hossa missing from the lineup.
With the veteran winger back, they more resembled the team that stormed to the Stanley Cup last season.
Hossa returned after a five-game absence with an upper-body injury to help the Hawks break out of the doldrums with a 4-1 victory over the Red Wings on Sunday night at the United Center. The win snapped a two-game skid for the Hawks and they remained one point behind the second-place Avalanche in the Central Division.
