Chicago’s second line of Kahun, Dylan Strome and Alex DeBrincat delivered once again to help the Blackhawks continue their surprising push after a lackluster first half of the season. Strome had a goal and two assists, and DeBrincat had three assists to extend his career-best points streak to eight games.
After Detroit pulled within one in the third period, Patrick Kane responded for Chicago with his 33rd goal. Kane made it 4-2 when he beat Jonathan Bernier low on the stick side with 3:33 left, extending the NHL’s longest active points streak to 14 games. Kane tacked on an assist on Jonathan Toews‘ empty-netter with 2:01 remaining. It was Toews’ 25th of the season. Gustav Nyquist and Christoffer Ehn scored for Detroit.
BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand scored 4:03 into overtime and Boston beat Colorado to extend its points streak to seven games.
John Moore also scored, and Jaroslav Halak made 35 saves to help the Bruins improve to 4-0-3 in their last seven.

The Avalanche have lost seventh in a row (0-3-3), but earned a point with a third straight overtime loss.
Connor Hellebuyck made 35 saves to help the Jets end their longest winless streak of the season and maintain the Central Division lead. At 35-18-3, Winnipeg earned its 73rd point to move two ahead of Nashville after the Predators‘ 5-4 overtime loss to St. Louis earlier in the day.
