|Toews, Kane Carry Blackhawks to SO Win Over Sens
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane scored on Chicago's first two attempts in the shootout, and the Blackhawks recovered after losing a late lead to beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Friday night.
Toews and Kane scored against Brian Elliott in the tiebreaker. Chicago rookie Corey Crawford stopped Alex Kovalev and Daniel Alfredsson to win it.
Milan Michalek backhanded in a rebound with 1:25 left in regulation, while Elliott was off for a sixth skater, to tie the game at 2 and force overtime. Crawford stopped Chris Campoli's drive from the left point, but Michalek shoveled in the loose puck from the crease.
Kane also scored in regulation and Patrick Sharp added his team-leading 24th goal for Chicago, which was 1-4 in its previous five games.
Alfredsson had a power-play goal in regulation for Ottawa, 0-2-2 in its last four.
