CHICAGO (AP) — Patrick Kane scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 3:28 left, and the Chicago Blackhawks bounced back to beat the Minnesota Wild 5-3 on Tuesday night for their 13th win in 15 games.

Kane's centering attempt from behind the net — intended for Patrick Sharp — struck the skate of Minnesota defenseman Jonas Brodin and carried into the net.

Chicago's Jonathan Toews had a goal and two assists. Marian Hossa and Brent Seabrook also scored, and Ben Smith added an empty-net goal for the surging Blackhawks, who won without top defenseman Duncan Keith who was sidelined by an illness.

Nino Niederreiter scored on a penalty shot, and Marco Scandella fired in a screened goal in the third period for the Wild, who came back from a 3-1 deficit to tie it. Thomas Vanek had a first-period goal.
