Panarin has 4 points to lift Blackhawks over Jets 5-4 in OT

Brent Seabrook scored 1:02 into overtime after Artemi Panarin tied it late in the third period with his second goal of the game, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 on Friday night.

Panarin also had two assists, including when he orchestrated a 2-on-1 with Seabrook in overtime. Panarin passed across the slot to the defenseman, and Seabrook beat Ondrej Pavelec with a shot inside the near post.

Patrick Kane and Brandon Mashinter also scored for the Blackhawks, who sneaked away winners in a game with four lead changes.

Earlier Friday, Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith was suspended six games for high-sticking Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle. Keith will miss five regular season games and one postseason game.

Scott Darling had 28 saves for Chicago.

Blake Wheeler scored twice for Winnipeg and extended his point streak to seven games. Nic Petan and Dustin Byfuglien also scored.

Wheeler has four goals and six assists during his run and 71 points on the season, which sets a new career high.

He made it 2-2 in the second period and assisted on Byfuglien's goal that made it 3-3 in the third before putting Winnipeg ahead with his second goal of the game. Panarin forced overtime when he scored at 15:17 of the third to make it 4-4.

Kane's 40th goal of the season puts him into a tie with Dallas forward Jamie Benn for second in goals behind Washington forward Alex Ovechkin. Panarin's 27 goals lead all NHL rookies, while his four points puts his total at 68 to also lead all freshmen.

Mashinter's goal was his fourth of the season.

Petan's second goal of the season opened the scoring, while Mark Scheifele's third-period assist extended his point streak to six games.

The Blackhawks have dominated Pavelec, who has yet to beat Chicago through his eight NHL seasons. The 28-year-old goaltender is 0-5-3 in eight career starts against Chicago. The Blackhawks also are 9-1-0 in their last 10 visits to Winnipeg.

Jonathan Toews needed stitches after taking a puck to his ear midway through the second period that sent the Blackhawks captain directly to the locker room. Toews returned to the game for the third period.

NOTES: The Jets, who will miss the playoffs for a fourth time since relocating from Atlanta five years ago, complete their home schedule Sunday night when they host the Minnesota Wild before wrapping up their regular season in California with matchups in Anaheim, San Jose and Los Angeles. ... The Blackhawks, 3-1-0 to finish their road swing, now return home for a trio of games this week against the Bruins, Coyotes and Blues before finishing their regular season schedule with a visit to Columbus.
