Patrick Kane Scores Two Goals as Blackhawks Tame Wild

The Chicago Blackhawks notched their fifth straight win on Sunday night as they beat the Minnesota Wild 4-1 at the United Center. 

Patrick Kane scored his 13th and 14th goals of the season, giving him 299 for his career and moving him past Dennis Hull for fifth place on the team's all-time goal scoring list. 

Nick Schmaltz had another assist in the game, and Tommy Wingels and Ryan Hartman each added goals of their own as the Blackhawks won their second straight game over a divisional opponent. 

Corey Crawford stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faced to earn his fifth straight victory since coming off of injured reserve. 

The Blackhawks jumped out to an early lead when Kane scored 11 minutes into the contest, hammering home a shot off a great feed from Schmaltz. Kane scored again late in the second period to extend the lead to 2-0, and from there the Blackhawks cruised. 

Hartman broke an 18-game scoring drought with his fifth goal of the season to make it 3-0, and despite a Matt Dumba goal four minutes later, the Blackhawks held on for the victory. 

Chicago will be off until Thursday night when they head to Dalla sto take on the Stars in another divisional showdown. That game starts a six game road trip that will carry the Blackhawks into the new year.
