(CHICAGO) - One day after a flurry of Boston power-play goals doomed them, Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks tightened up and turned the tables on the Bruins. Kane scored a tie-breaking power-play goal with 3:16 left in the third period and had an assist, and the Blackhawks beat Boston 3-1 on Sunday afternoon. Kane scored on a screened shot from just inside the left point to put Chicago ahead 2-1 with Boston's Zdeno Chara off for high-sticking Brandon Saad, getting a double-minor for drawing blood. Brent Seabrook added a goal from the right circle on a screened shot with 1:05 remaining as the Blackhawks ended Boston's six-game winning streak and their own two-game slide. Artem Anisimov scored Chicago's first power-play goal as the Blackhawks went 2 for 5 with the man advantage on Sunday. In a 7-4 loss at Boston on Saturday, the Bruins scored four times in six chances. Kane's goal was his 25th. Anton Forsberg made 31 saves for Chicago while Jonathan Toews had 3 assists. Chara scored his seventh goal, tying the game 1-1 midway through the third period. The Bruins were playing without leading scorer Brad Marchand, who's out day to day with an upper-body injury.
