Patrick Kane scored with 16.1 seconds remaining on an odd-man rush and Jonathan Toews assisted on both third-period goals as the Blackhawks rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night.

 

Alex DeBrincat scored two goals, Artem Anisimov had a short-handed goal and Corey Crawford made 29 saves as the Blackhawks snapped a two-game losing streak.

 

Kane got his seventh game-winning goal of the season and 60th of his career when he fired a wrist shot past Ryan Miller. Toews was able to get the puck out of the Chicago zone with a pass near center ice to Brandon Saad, who was able to skate past two Anaheim defenders before he found Kane. The goal was Kane's 40th of the season and just the second time in his career he has reached that mark. He had 46 in 2015-16.

 

Toews also assisted on Chicago's tying goal at 15:06 of the third when he around the net made a cross-crease pass to Alex DeBrincat, who beat Miller on his stick side for his second goal of the game.

 

The win is Chicago's ninth in the 13 games it has played since the All-Star break. They remain five points behind Colorado for the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference but their 18 points since the break are the second-most in the conference.

 

Devin Shore, Carter Rowney and Troy Terry scored for Anaheim, which has dropped its last four. Miller stopped 31 shots.

 

With the two goals, DeBrincat has 36 on the season and became the fourth player in Blackhawks history to score 35 or more goals in a season at age 21 or younger. He joined Bobby Hull, Steve Larmer and Jeremy Roenick, who did it two straight seasons.

 

The Blackhawks travel to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.
