DETROIT (AP) — Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist 1:24 apart on power plays in the second period and Artemi Panarin scored twice, helping the Chicago Blackhawks rout the Detroit Red Wings 5-2 on Wednesday night.

Kane assisted Panarin on a 5-on-3 goal and scored with a one-man advantage to give Chicago a 3-0 lead. Kane finished with three points, extending his NHL-leading total to 88 to match his career high set during the 2009-10 season.

Corey Crawford didn’t give up a goal until midway through the third period when Brad Richards scored.

Andrew Ladd restored the three-goal lead in the third period in his second game back with the Blackhawks. Panarin scored his second goal 35 seconds later from the top of the left circle off a cross-ice pass from Kane. Brent Seabrook also scored for Chicago.

Gustav Nyquist had Detroit’s other goal.

    Although I will not dismiss the concerns and weak spots through out this year’s team that many of us point to as cause for worry, and understand why these imperfections would raise doubt, I still believe that this squad is capable of going the distance once more. I think their chances are realistic. A big portion these guys have played ALOT OF HOCKEY over the last few years, and they are starting to really feel what comes with it. I think, especially with our older skaters, that some of them are starting to realize that they cannot do the things that made them special in every game they play in. And that is why there have been ups and downs this season. But this group knows how to win, and what it takes to get there. And I would not be surprised what so ever if certain players weren’t bringing their all in every game this year because they were doing what was needed so they could be ready to go when it really mattered. They were saving it so that they could do the special things that has set them apart from the rest in order to win again. We all know these guys know what it takes to win, and they are making sure they have the best chance to win again, because they want it now more than ever.
