Blackhawks Lose Third Straight In Shootout With Ducks
CHICAGO (AP) — Nick Bonino and Kyle Palmieri scored in the shootout to help the Anaheim Ducks beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Friday night, sending the defending Stanley Cup champions to their third consecutive loss.
Bonino matched Jonathan Toews’ goal in the first round of the tiebreaker, and Palmieri beat Antti Raanta with a backhand after Jonas Hiller stopped Patrick Sharp at the other end.
Hiller then made another save on Patrick Kane to give Anaheim the win after it lost its previous two games in a shootout.
Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf scored in regulation for the Ducks, and Hiller finished with 23 saves.
The three-game losing streak for the Blackhawks is their worst regular-season stretch since February 2012.
