Patrick Kane Leads Blackhawks Past Jets 4-3
CHICAGO (AP) -- Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists to help the Chicago Blackhawks overcome an early two-goal deficit in a 4-3 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

Linemate Marian Hossa added a goal and an assist, and Andrew Brunette and Dave Bolland also scored for the Blackhawks.

Jim Slater scored twice early in the first period for the Jets, and Kyle Wellwood added a goal late in the second.

The Jets, who relocated from Atlanta in the offseason, dropped to 0-2. They lost their home opener to Montreal 5-1 on Sunday night.

Chicago backup Ray Emery made his first start since signing as a free agent in July and stopped 27 shots. Chicago's No. 1 goalie, Corey Crawford, was on the bench and available, although he has been nursing a lower-body injury.

Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves for Winnipeg.
