Kirby Dach, Dominik Kubilik and Alex DeBrincat scored, Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Dallas Stars 4-2 on Tuesday night.

 

The Stars rallied from a three-goal deficit in the third period, but goaltender Kevin Lankinen stopped Dallas' Roope Hintz in the slot with 93 seconds to play after goals by Andrew Cogliano and Radek Faksa closed the gap.

 

The victory stopped Chicago's two-game losing streak and extended Dallas' losing skid to two games, dropping them to sixth place in the Central Division. The Blackhawks remain in fourth place.

 

Chicago's Dach opened the scoring in the first period, about 11 minutes after his pass to set up an apparent goal by Kane was ruled offside. Dach accepted a pass from Kane and flipped a 15-foot wrist shot over goaltender Jake Oettinger's glove side at 12:05.

 

Dallas assistant coach John Stevens was in charge of the bench Tuesday night with head coach Rick Bowness still in Raleigh, North Carolina, awaiting NHL clearance after what the Stars termed a false positive for COVID-19 on Sunday morning.

 

The Stars and Blackhawks meet again Thursday night in Chicago.
