Patrick Kane's second goal of the game, with 2:18 left in overtime, gave the Chicago Blackhawks a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. Kane extended his point streak to 19 games and helped the Blackhawks recover after blowing a 4-1 lead in the third period.

 

Dylan Larkin and Andreas Athanasiou scored two goals each for the Red Wings, who tied it late in the third. But Kane fired home the pass from Gustafsson in overtime, beating goalie Jonathan Bernier for his 38th goal of the season.

 

Artem Anisimov, Brandon Saad and Alex DeBrincat scored for Chicago in the first period. The Blackhawks have won 10 of their last 12 games, and this was the seventh time in that span that they scored at least five goals.

 

Chicago is now tied with Colorado for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.

 

Kane trails league leader Alex Ovechkin by just four goals now, although his goals Wednesday were his only points of the night. His assist streak ended at 17 games.

 

Chicago beat Ottawa 8-7 on Monday, and the Blackhawks went through another high-scoring night against Detroit. 

 

Kane has 16 goals in 26 assists during his point streak. 

 

The Blackhawks host Colorado on Friday night.
