Recap: Winnipeg vs. Chicago

Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Jonathan Toews had a goal and three assists in the Chicago Blackhawks' 6-3 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane each had a goal and an assist for the Blackhawks, who improved to 15-4-4 on the season and remained one point ahead of St. Louis in the Central Division.

Patrick Sharp, Ben Smith and Brandon Saad also lit the lamp, while Corey Crawford stopped 22-of-25 shots for the victors.

"I really liked the way we played tonight," said Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville. "I thought we answered the bell at the start of the game, and answered the bell when they had their run there in the second, but I thought we had an excellent first and third period, and did a lot of good things to play the right way."

Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien each had a goal and an assist for the Jets, who have dropped three in a row. Keaton Ellerby also lit the lamp.

Ondrej Pavelec gave up five goals on 32 shots in defeat.

"We got what we deserved," Pavelec said "If you play in your zone like we did tonight, you can't expect to get a point. They won the cup for a reason."

Hossa broke a 3-3 tie at the 3:11 mark of the third period. Toews carried the puck down the right side before sliding a cross-ice pass to Hossa, who chipped the disc past Pavelec.

Smith jammed home a rebound at the 5:22 mark to make it a 5-3 contest. Sharp added an empty-net goal with 54.1 seconds to play.

Chicago drew first blood at the 17:26 mark of the first period. While on the power play, Kane scored from the high slot to extend his point streak to nine games.

Saad also scored from the high slot at the 3:03 mark of the middle stanza.

Just 19 seconds later, Ladd found the back of the net from the right circle. Ellerby tied the game at the 3:51 mark when his one-timer from the right point got past Crawford.

Toews put the Blackhawks back in front at 11:03. He made a nice move to get around a defender before beating Pavelec from in close.

Byfuglien put home a rebound at the 13:30 of the second stanza to make it a 3-3 game.
