Toews Scores in Shootout, Blackhawks Rally to Beat New Jersey
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Jonathan Toews scored the only shootout goal and Antti Niemi made 32 saves as the Chicago Blackhawks moved a step closer to the Central Division title with a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils Friday night.

Niemi only had to make one save during the shootout, but it was a magnificent pad stop on Zach Parise after Toews beat Martin Brodeur with a wrist shot on Chicago's first shot.

Jamie Langenbrunner never got his shot off, and Ilya Kovalchuk missed the net with a backhander as the Devils lost their third straight. New Jersey still moved into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division with idle Pittsburgh.
