Toews sees Blackhawks past Wild
The Chicago Blackhawks finally claimed an NHL win over the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday.
An overtime goal from Jonathan Toews saw the Blackhawks end an eight-game regular-season losing streak against the Wild with a 4-3 victory.
Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford made 35 saves at Xcel Energy Center, where Chicago never trailed.
Goals from Jared Spurgeon and Zach Parise helped the Wild recover from 2-0 down, before Erik Haula cancelled out Richard Panik's go-ahead goal.
But Toews struck in a power-play with one minute, 51 seconds left in OT to secure Chicago's win.
The Blackhawks are now just five points behind Central Division leaders Minnesota.
