CHICAGO — Patrick Kane scored his 34th goal and added two assists to lead Chicago to a 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night for the Blackhawks' eighth victory in nine games.

Damon Severson and Travis Zajac scored to give the Devils a 2-0 lead with a little more than three minutes left in the first period before the Blackhawks took over. New Jersey has lost two straight and five of its last six.

After Detroit pulled within one in the third period, Patrick Kane responded for Chicago with his 33rd goal.

BOX SCORE: BLACKHAWKS 5, DEVILS 2

Devils goalie Cory Schneider finished with 31 saves to extend his regular-season winless streak to 24 games. He is now 0-17-4 since his last win Dec. 27, 2017.

Kane extended his points streak to 16 games and moved into second in NHL scoring with 85 points. He has 12 goals and 22 assists during the run. The star forward also extended his assists streak to 15 games, eclipsing Stan Mikita's team record set in 1967.

Kane recorded three or more points for the 10th time this season to help Chicago rebound after a 6-3 loss in Boston on Tuesday.

The Devils dominated early in this one, outshooting Chicago 9-2 midway through the first period and testing Ward.

Severson opened the scoring from the right circle 7:14 in. He was wide open and beat Ward on the glove side after taking Brett Seney's cross-ice pass after Chicago defenseman Erik Gustafsson was checked off the puck in the corner.

Patrick Kane is quietly having one of the best seasons of his career The Chicago Blackhawks have crept back into a very congested playoff race in the NHL’s Western Conference. 

Kane scored his 34th goal and added two assists to lead Chicago to a 5 - 2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night for the Blackhawks ' eighth victory in nine games. Kane extended his points streak to 16 games and moved into second in NHL scoring with 85 points.

CHICAGO (AP) According to the numbers, it sure seems Patrick Kane is at the top of his game. However, the star forward thinks he may be able to reach an even higher level.

Zajac's power-play goal from the slot with 3:18 left in the first made it 2-0. Marcus Johansson fed him from near the goal line to cap a nifty series of quick passes.

Kane scored 1:35 later during a delayed penalty call to cut it to 2-1 and quell the Devils' momentum. He beat Schneider through a screen from the slot after skating in from the blue line.

Caggiula's 10th goal 20 seconds into the second tied it. Set up by Kane's pass in the slot, Caggiula cut into the right circle and fired a rising shot over Schneider's outstretched glove.

Toews 26th goal, with 6:48 left in the second, gave Chicago its first lead of the game. Kane carried the puck over the Devils line on the left side, then dished to Slater Koekkoek. Koekkoek skated ahead into the circle and fed a cross-ice pass to Toews as the Chicago captain dashed in uncovered down the right side.

Ward lost his mask as he made quick, close-in saves on Zajac and Johansson during a Devils power play early in the third to preserve Chicago's lead.

Alex DeBrincat's hat trick leads the Blackhawks to a wild 8-7 victory over the Senators

Alex DeBrincat's hat trick leads the Blackhawks to a wild 8-7 victory over the Senators CHICAGO - Let's see now, there were no short-handed goals, and nobody scored on a penalty shot. Other than that, this game had pretty much everything. There were power-play goals, a hat trick, a nine-goal first period, both teams pulled their starting goalies, and, for the first time in an NHL game, Dominik Kahun was called for a penalty. But most importantly, the Blackhawks came away with a victory, outlasting the Senators 8-7 on Monday night at the United Center to move within one point of the Western Conference's final playoff spot.

After winning a faceoff in the Devils zone, Anisimov skated to the net and swept in rebound of Gustafssson's shot from the blue line with about 6 1/2 minutes remaining to make it 4-2. Saad assisted on the play for his 300th point.

Saad stuffed in a short-handed goal to finish a breakaway 1:39 later.
