NHL Game Summary - Chicago at Phoenix

(Saturday, January 19th)

Final Score: Chicago 2, Phoenix 1 (SO)

Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Patrick Kane netted the winner as Chicago picked up its second consecutive shootout win, 2-1, over Phoenix.

With the first shot in the extra round, Kane scored by lifting a backhander over Ilya Bryzgalov. Patrick Lalime followed by stopping Joel Perreault. Martin Havlat then scored low to the stick side, and Lalime closed his pads on a forehander by Peter Mueller to end the game.

Brent Seabrook scored for the Blackhawks, who have won four games in a row.

Lalime made 38 saves to earn his eighth win of the season.

Mueller tallied in regulation for the Coyotes, who have dropped two in a row and four of six.

Bryzgalov made 23 saves in the loss.

Phoenix broke a scoreless tie at 12:08 of the second period with a power- play goal, as Perreault's blast deflected off a Hawks defenseman and Mueller on its way into the cage.

Seabrook equalized at 15:56, when his one-timer from the left circle sailed past Bryzgalov on the far side.

The best chance for either side to net a game-winner after that came when Coyotes defenseman Ed Jovanovski pulled down Hawks forward Rene Bourque at center ice, preventing a possible breakaway with 15 seconds left in overtime.

Bourque was granted a penalty shot, but Bryzgalov went for the poke check, forcing the young forward to pull his shot off the top of the goaltender's stick and wide.
