DeBrincat's 28th goal snaps tie in 3rd, Blackhawks down Jets
Alex DeBrincat is high-fived by teammates after he broke the tie in the 3rd period during the Blackhawks regular season matchup against the Winnipeg Jets on February 14, 2022.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Alex DeBrincat scored his 28th goal midway through the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Monday night.

DeBrincat beat Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck with a high shot at 9:42 to break a 1-all tie. Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist, and Brandon Hagel added an empty-netter.



Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves for the Blackhawks (18-24-7), who have won twice in their last six games (2-4-0).

Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets (20-18-8), and Hellebuyck stopped 21 of the 23 shots he faced.

Winnipeg was 2-0-1 in its previous three games.

There was no scoring in the first period and Chicago led 1-0 after the second.

Winnipeg outshot the Blackhawks 11-8 in the opening period. The Jets had the only power play, but Fleury turned aside two shots, including one from Winnipeg’s leading scorer, Kyle Connor.

The Blackhawks picked up the pace in the second and were rewarded with Kane’s 12th goal of the season.

Using Kirby Dach skating ahead of him as a bit of a screen, Kane snapped a low shot through Hellebuyck’s pads at 10:21.

Kane also had a shot sail wide of an open net and rang one off the crossbar.

Chicago had a power play early in the period but couldn’t get a shot on net.

Jets forward Adam Lowry got a short-handed breakaway, but Fleury appeared to throw his stick attempting a poke check and it hit Lowry’s stick to nix a shot.

Winnipeg had a 9-8 edge in shots in the second.

Scheifele evened the score at 6:17 of the third when he banged in a puck that had bounced off a player and landed at the side of the crease.

DeBrincat gave Chicago the lead again and Hagel added to it at 19:04.
