The Blackhawks also lost captain Jonathan Toews to an upper-body injury in the second period. Toews was hit hard by Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik and was holding his left arm on the bench before heading down the runway.

James Neal and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Penguins, who won their second straight and snapped a three-game home losing streak. Marc-Andre Fleury made 25 saves in his 36th victory of the season.

Orpik drilled Toews in the corner with 6:30 remaining in the second period while the two went for a loose puck.

It’s been a rough stretch for injuries for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who will be without star forward Patrick Kane for the rest of the regular season due to a lower-body injury. Bryan Bickell is out with an upper-body injury but is expected to return soon.

Sheldon Brookbank scored for the Blackhawks, who have lost three straight in regulation for the first time since February 2012.

BRUINS 4, FLYERS 3

Andrej Meszaros and Zdeno Chara also scored for the Bruins.

RED WINGS 3, LIGHTNING 2

DETROIT • David Legwand had a goal and an assist, and Detroit held off Tampa Bay to move into seventh place in the Eastern Conference.
