Stalberg's OT Goal Lifts Blackhawks Over Predators
CHICAGO (AP) -- Viktor Stalberg scored at 2:18 of overtime and Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist in regulation to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Nashville Predators 5-4 on Monday night.

Stalberg rushed down the right wing on a 3-on-2 break, but pulled up with a move that made Nashville defenseman Jack Hillen turn the wrong way. Stalberg then fired a shot past Pekke Rinne for his third goal in two games.

Nick Leddy and Bryan Bickell also scored for the Blackhawks (7-2-2), who got three assists from Marian Hossa.

Patric Hornqvist scored twice and Craig Smith and Dave Legwand also connected for the Predators (5-5-1).

Chicago's Duncan Keith, the 2010 Norris Trophy winner as the NHL's top defenseman, left the game in the second period with an upper-body injury and didn't return.
