First Published      Last Updated Mar 20 2017 07:46 pm

NHL » Chicago prevails 6-3 for fifth straight victory.

Chicago • Jonathan Toews scored twice and Richard Panik and Artemi Panarin each had one in a span of 3:02 in the third period to erase Colorado's two-goal lead and rally the Chicago Blackhawks past the Avalanche 6-3 on Sunday night for their fifth straight win.

Patrick Kane scored his team-leading 32nd goal and Marcus Kruger added an empty-netter for Chicago, which won for the 17th time in its last 20 games to pull seven points ahead of slumping second-place Minnesota in the Central Division. The Wild dropped their fifth straight, 5-4 to Winnipeg on Sunday.

Penguins 4, Panthers 0 • In Pittsburgh, Sidney Crosby again picked up the slack with Evgeni Malkin out, getting his 10th career hat trick and leading Pittsburgh past Florida.




Blue Jackets 4, Devils 1 • In Newark, N.J., Lukas Sedlak and Brandon Dubinsky scored on penalty shots and Columbus Blue clinched its third playoff berth in franchise history with a victory over New Jersey.

Jets 5, Wild 4 • In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Josh Morrissey one-timed in a goal with 7:17 left to end Minnesota's rally from four goals down and give Winnipeg a chaotic victory over the Wild. It was Minnesota's fifth straight loss.

Flyers 4, Hurricanes 3 • In Philadelphia, Travis Konecny tied it with 42.9 seconds left in the third period and Brayden Schenn scored 38 seconds into overtime, lifting Philadelphia Flyers over Carolina. Jordan Staal scored a power-play goal with 8:11 left in the third to put Carolina ahead 3-2, but Konecny scored with Flyers goalie Steve Mason on the bench for an extra attacker, then Schenn ended it by finishing a rebound from close range.

Canadiens 4, Senators 1 • In Montreal, Carey Price made 30 saves for his 33rd win of the season and Montreal defeated Ottawa to sweep the home-and-home series. Tomas Plekanec, Jordie Benn, Paul Byron and Nathan Beaulieu scored for the Canadiens.
