ST. PAUL Adidas Xavier Ouellet Jersey , Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild started the season sluggishly, with a four-day break on the schedule following two flat performances.The spark came midway through this matchup with division rival Chicago, with a big push by Jason Zucker.Ryan Suter tied the game with 23 seconds left in the third period and Zucker scored in overtime, rallying the Wild past the Blackhawks 4-3 on Thursday night.Zucker had two goals and an assist, including a breakaway backhander 3:25 into the extra period. Zach Parise sent a long pass across the red line to a streaking Zucker, whose shot zipped between Cam Ward’s pads to give the Wild (1-1-1) their first win of the season.“I know the way I can play, and tonight was much more like it. I think everybody would’ve said the same thing about the first two games. We all wanted to step up and play well,” Zucker said. “That’s what true leadership is, just guys going out and showing it on the ice.”Suter’s takeaway gave the Wild possession on that play, after he batted in a backhander off a short-handed rebound of Parise’s shot to make it 3-3. The 14-year veteran defenseman, coming off a career-threatening ankle injury in April, had two assists.“The first one’s always the toughest,” Suter said, adding: “It was good to find a way to win. It wasn’t pretty, but it doesn’t really matter.”Particularly his tying goal that emerged from a mass of bodies in front of the net.“When they were banging it on the post, I didn’t see Suter right there on the top of the crease,” Ward said. “That’s desperation on their part, and good on them.”Alex DeBrincat had two goals and an assist for the Blackhawks Adidas Tomas Tatar Jersey , including a go-ahead score on a power play early in the third period, but Devan Dubnyk made 27 saves for the Wild including a thumping denial with his pad of Patrick Kane’s close-range try in overtime.Jonathan Toews kept up his season-opening surge with two assists for the Blackahwks. He set up DeBrincat’s first score during a 4-on-4 with a hard stop on a rush to slide the puck across the slot. Then he fed rookie Dominik Kahun for his first NHL goal less than three minutes later.Patrick Kane assisted on DeBrincat’s second score, giving the Toews-Kane-DeBrincat trio a whopping 22 points in four games. Toews has a team-leading five goals and three assists for the Blackhawks (2-0-2), who have 18 goals in four games after missing the playoffs last spring for the first time in 10 years.Still, on a power play with 1:17 remaining in the third period, they couldn’t help but be frustrated with the outcome.“We should’ve been able to put it away,” DeBrincat said. “We should’ve been able to keep it in their zone and maybe even get a few scoring chances.”Ward, keeping the net warm for the expected return next week of Corey Crawford from a concussion that cut short his 2017-18 season, made a season-high 42 saves for the Blackhawks. Each of their four games have been decided in overtime.“They went to the net hard,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said, “but he stood his ground and played well.”Eric Staal scored for Minnesota in the second period, and Zucker tied it with 2.8 seconds left before the second intermission by snagging Staal’s off-target pass and knocking it past Ward.“It gives you a better vibe, confidence,” Staal said. “It wasn’t the be-all, end-all, but it’s big to get that first win.”NOTES: The 20-year-old DeBrincat, playing on the Toews-anchored first line with Kahun, has 59 points in 86 career games. … The Wild are 12-4-1 in their last 17 games against the Blackhawks. … RW J.T. Brown made his debut with the Wild after being scratched the first two games. He replaced Matt Hendricks on the fourth line. … The Wild are 0 for 7 on the power play this season. … LW Alexandre Fortin Adidas Dan Hamhuis Jersey , who played on the third line for the Blackhawks with Chris Kunitz and Artem Anisimov, made his NHL debut. He’s already the fourth Blackhawks player to do so this season. One of them is Luke Johnson, who was scratched to make room for Fortin. … This was Zucker’s second career overtime goal.UP NEXTBlackhawks: Host the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.Wild: Host the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday. CHICAGO (AP) The Anaheim Ducks are in the playoff hunt heading into the final part of the season despite a couple of injuries to key players throughout the year.Without Adam Henrique, they would be in major trouble.Henrique snapped a tie with his 18th goal 8:34 into the third period, and the Ducks handed the Chicago Blackhawks their eighth straight loss with a 3-2 victory on Thursday night.Article continues below ...”I thought the guys did a great job sticking with it in the third, even when we were under pressure,” Henrique said. ”A lot of big blocked shots and a lot of big plays that usually get overlooked, but are big plays for the win.”The 28-year-old Henrique has 14 goals, including six game-winners, and eight assists in 34 games since he was acquired in a Nov. 30 trade with New Jersey. He has adjusted to a couple different roles as injured players have returned to the Ducks.”He’s a real smart player and we feel very, very fortunate to have him,” coach Randy Carlyle said.Ondrej Kase had a goal and two assists and John Gibson made 42 saves as Anaheim improved to 1-1 on a four-game trip. Nick Ritchie added a goal and an assist.The Ducks (28-20-11) had dropped two in a row and four of six, hurting their playoff positioning as they try to secure a postseason spot in the Western Conference.”It was huge win for us,” Ritchie said. ”Obviously not a perfect game, but we’ll take the two points.”Kase found a wide-open Henrique in front, and he beat Anton Forsberg to lift Anaheim to a 3-2 lead. Chicago pulled Forsberg for an extra attacker with about 2:15 left, but Gibson made a great stop on Brandon Saad to help the Ducks hold on during the frantic final minutes.Duncan Keith scored his first goal of the season for last-place Chicago (24-26-8), which has lost seven in a row at home. Saad also snapped a long scoring drought Adidas Eric Tangradi Jersey , and Forsberg made 29 stops.”I think we just made too many mistakes,” Saad said. ”We had some good minutes, but we’re giving up too many chances, breakaways, things like that.”The eight-game slide for the once-mighty Blackhawks is their longest losing streak since they dropped nine in a row in early 2012.”It just seems like it’s the way it’s been going. If we give up a goal, it seems we get down on ourselves or something, I don’t know,” Keith said. ”It kind of snowballs. There’s where we kind of have to dig in and bear down and battle a little bit harder.”Chicago jumped in front on its fourth power play of the game. With Cam Fowler in the penalty box for tripping Alex DeBrincat, Keith drove a long slap shot by a screened Gibson on the glove side 1:45 into the second period.It was the first goal for Keith since March 16 at Ottawa. The two-time Norris Trophy winner has just 26 points after he had six goals and 47 assists last season.Saad then finished off a pretty give-and-go with Vinnie Hinostroza at 9:12, tapping it in at the net for his 14th of the season. Saad had no goals and one assist in his previous 16 games.But Anaheim responded with goals on back-to-back shots midway through the period. Ritchie put a backhander into the upper corner on Forsberg’s glove side 41 seconds after Saad scored, and Kase finished off a breakaway with another nice backhander for the tying goal at 12:18.Chicago got another power play after Blackhawks forward Ryan Hartman creased Jakob Silfverberg with a big hit with about two minutes left in the second, prompting Anaheim’s Josh Manson to start a fight with Hartman. But the Ducks killed it off, part of a 1-for-5 night with the man advantage for the Blackhawks.NOTES: Chicago recalled G Jean-Francois Berube from Rockford of AHL and assigned goalie Jeff Glass to its top minor league affiliate. The 26-year-old Berube made one appearance with the Blackhawks earlier this season, stopping 12 of 14 shots on Dec. 6 at Washington. … The Blackhawks traded minor-league D Ville Pokka to Ottawa for center Chris DiDomenico, who will report to Rockford.UP NEXTDucks: Visit Minnesota on Saturday.Blackhawks: Host Washington on Saturday night.—Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap
