Kane nets shootout winner for Blackhawks

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 03, 2011
Patrick Kane scored the only goal in a shootout and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Florida Panthers 3-2 on Thursday night. Corey Crawford stopped all three shootout attempts before Kane's backhander beat Jacob Markstrom. Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa each scored in regulation for Chicago, while Crawford stopped 41 shots. Ed Jovanovski and Stephen Weiss scored for Florida, with Markstrom making 31 saves of his own. Florida tied the score with 2:04 left in regulation when Jovanovski deflected a shot from Dmitry Kulikov and tipped it past Crawford. Trailing 2-0, the Panthers scored late in the second period. Weiss took a pass from Kris Versteeg between the circles. His first shot bounced off the skate of a Chicago defenseman, but Weiss grabbed the rebound and poked in the puck at 18:19. Chicago took a 1-0 lead on Toews' goal at 4:04 of the first. Kulikov passed the puck in his own zone, but it was picked off by Andrew Brunette. He passed to Toews in front and he pushed the puck past Markstrom. The Blackhawks stretched their lead to 2-0 in the second. Kane passed the pack across the ice to Hossa at the bottom of the right circle. His slap shot beat Markstrom at 4:51. Hossa has four goals and an assist in the last four games against Florida. NOTES: Chicago D Duncan Keith, who left last Monday's game with an upper-body injury, was scratched. ... Daniel Carcillo was back in the Blackhawks' lineup after serving a two-game suspension for an illegal check on the Hurricanes' Joni Pitkanen. ... Florida LW Sean Bergenheim was back on the ice after missing seven games with a lower-body injury. ... Panthers LW Tomas Fleischmann extended his points streak to six games. ... Florida D Erik Gudbranson was a healthy scratch for the first time this season. ... Florida's Brian Campbell, Kris Versteeg and Tomas Kopecky all faced their former team for the first time.
