WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Kyle Connor scored twice, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Blackhawks, 6-3, on Tuesday night to hand them their eighth straight loss.
Dylan Strome, Dominik Kahun and Alex DeBrincat scored for the Hawks. Patrick Kane added a pair of assists.
Cam Ward stopped 28 shots for the Hawks (9-18-5), who also lost eight straight earlier this season, although two were in overtime. The current slump is all in regulation time.
Winnipeg (19-9-2) led, 3-0, after the first period, but the Hawks came back to make it 4-3 early in the third.
The Hawks didn’t get their first shot on goal until 17:36 into the game, drawing sarcastic cheers from some fans.
Scheifele opened the scoring with a power-play goal when he redirected Byfuglien’s point shot at 7:49 for his 17th goal. Myers scored 72 seconds later.
Connor’s 12th of the season came after he took the puck most of the way down the ice, lost control of it in the slot, got his stick on it and put a backhand shot past Ward’s glove at 13:38.
Connor scored his second goal of the game off a rebound on the power play at 1:44 of the second, but Strome got the visitors on the board 20 seconds later.
Duncan Keith had an assist. He and defenseman Brent Seabrook marked their 1,000th regular-season game together, the most by current NHL teammates and seventh all-time.
Kahun squeezed Winnipeg’s lead to 4-2 after he banged in a rebound at 7:09. DeBrincat sent a sharp-angled shot between the post and Brossoit to make it 4-3 at 6:08 of the third, but Perreault scored on the power play to regain the two-goal lead at 11:36.
Kane extended his points streak to four games with two goals and four assists.
Notes: Ward make an arching glove save to thwart Connor’s hat-trick bid late in the second.
Hawks: Host Pittsburgh on Wednesday night to start a four-game homestand.
Jets: End a four-game homestand against Edmonton on Thursday night.
