DETROIT — Michael Rasmussen scored a power play goal late in the third period to give the Red Wings the lead for good in the first preseason game, a 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.
Detroit led 3-1 behind goals from Matt Puempel, Matthew Ford, and Chris Terry, but Chicago tied the game after a pair of Dominik Kubalik goals.
Luke Glendening, wearing the 'A' on his sweater for the first time with the Red Wings, scored an empty-net goal.
The Red Wings rested most of their veteran players, giving guys like Rasmussen a chance to prove they belong on the roster.
