Detroit has won four of five games, and six straight in Chicago.
Jeff Hamilton and Tuomo Ruutu scored for the Blackhawks, who fell to 5-1-3 under new coach Denis Savard. Nikolai Khabibulin made 23 saves.
Cleary extended his point streak to seven games, and has five goals and four assists in that span.
Detroit right wing Tomas Kopecky left with an injury 53 seconds into the third period.
Kopecky was motionless on the ice for a few minutes before being helped to the dressing room by members of the Detroit training staff. FSN Detroit reported that he suffered a fractured collarbone.
As he approached the Chicago blue line, Kopecky went down and slid into the left boards before Blackhawks defenseman Jim Vandermeer fell on top of him.
