Short-handed goal lifts Chicago past Carolina

– Jonathan Toews’ short-handed breakaway goal early in the third period snapped a tie, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 on Friday night.

Patrick Sharp scored his team-leading 30th goal, and Kris Versteeg ended an eight-game drought to help the Blackhawks win without leading scorer Patrick Kane, who was placed on long-term injured reserve after suffering a lower-body injury in Chicago’s victory over St. Louis on Wednesday.

Corey Crawford made 26 saves.

Alexander Semin scored his 20th and 21st goals as the Hurricanes fought back from a two-goal deficit.

Anton Khudobin stopped 22 shots for Carolina.

The Blackhawks were also without injured forwards Brandon Saad and Bryan Bickell, and defenseman Michal Rozsival.

Kane, who could miss the rest of the regular season, was injured in a collision with St. Louis’ Brenden Morrow. He left the ice under his own power, favoring his left leg.

BRUINS 2, AVALANCHE 0: In Denver, Patrice Bergeron and Carl Soderberg each had a goal, and Chad Johnson stopped 31 shots for his third career shutout as Boston won its 11th in a row to become the first team to clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

RANGERS 3, BLUE JACKETS 1: In Columbus, Ohio, Derick Brassard and Derek Stepan scored third-period goals, and Henrik Lundqvist made 25 saves to lead New York.
