DETROIT (AP) — Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist 1:24 apart on power plays in the second period and Artemi Panarin scored twice, helping the Chicago Blackhawks rout the Detroit Red Wings 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Kane assisted Panarin on a 5-on-3 goal and scored with a one-man advantage to give Chicago a 3-0 lead. Kane finished with three points, extending his NHL-leading total to 88 to match his career high set during the 2009-10 season.
Corey Crawford didn’t give up a goal until midway through the third period when Brad Richards scored.
Andrew Ladd restored the three-goal lead in the third period in his second game back with the Blackhawks. Panarin scored his second goal 35 seconds later from the top of the left circle off a cross-ice pass from Kane. Brent Seabrook also scored for Chicago.
Gustav Nyquist had Detroit’s other goal.
