Rookie forward Richard Panik had a goal and an assist, Artem Anisimov also scored and Artemi Panarin added two assists for Chicago. Andrew Desjardins scored into an empty net.

Corey Crawford won his ninth straight as the Blackhawks took the season series 3-1 with a game remaining against their Central Division rivals.
