Lundqvist made two big saves on Vancouver’s rookie sensation Elias Pettersson in the closing seconds to preserve the win.
The 19-year-old Chytil tied the score 1-1 with 7:18 left in the second on a rebound from the left side for his first of the season. The 20-yearHowden got the game-winner with 8:41 left in the third when he snapped a wrist shot past Markstrom.
Teuvo Teravainen and Micheal Ferland scored power-play goals 66 seconds apart late in the second period for Carolina, which has earned points in three straight and beat Chicago for the second time in four nights.
Carolina’s Scott Darling made 33 saves against his former team, in regulation coming up with a slick glove save to stop Patrick Kane on a 2-on-1 and making a left pad save to stop Nick Schmaltz on a breakaway.
Aho’s winner came after he took a pass at the blue line, then skated in before drifting across the net and beating Ward with a wrist shot.

Dubois took a pass from Cam Atkinson behind the net and backhanded the puck under the crossbar with 9:39 left for his eighth goal.
Atkinson had scored the game’s first goal in the second period.
The Blue Jackets extended their points streak to five games (3-0-2) and are two points ahead of the New York Rangers in the division. Columbus has won its last seven games against the Stars.
Dallas maintained fourth place in the Central Division.
Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky and Dallas’ Anton Khubodin each had 26 saves.
