CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks finally got to celebrate Wednesday night.
It had been a while.
Jonathan Toews had a goal and two assists, and Chicago stopped an eight-game losing streak with a 6-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
"I think we played a winning style tonight," coach Jeremy Colliton said. "Direct, hard-nosed. Hopefully that'll turn into more points.
"So nice to see them get rewarded, because we played really hard in some other games and didn't come out with a point."
CHICAGO (AP) — Jeremy Colliton got his first win as an NHL coach when Corey Crawford made 28 saves to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the St. Louis Blues 1-0 on Wednesday night, stopping an eight-game losing streak.
Chicago's slide began with a 7-3 loss at St. Louis on Oct. 27, and Colliton took over after Joel Quenneville was fired on Nov. 6. The Blackhawks then dropped his first three games behind the bench before shutting down the Blues in the opener of a three-game homestand.
CHICAGO (AP) — Connor McDavid scored 53 seconds into overtime to lift the Edmonton Oilers to their third straight win, 2-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.
After two Blackhawks skaters got caught deep in their zone, McDavid finished a 2-on-1 break, taking a cross-ice feed from Leon Draisaitl and beating Cam Ward from the left circle for his eighth goal.
Chicago's Brent Seabrook and Edmonton's Zack Kassian scored in the first period.
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks spoiled the Ottawa Senators' home opener with a big finish.

CHICAGO (AP) — Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook is back after missing the start of training camp with an abdominal injury.
The team announced Friday that Seabrook would miss about a week, but he practiced with the team on Sunday.
The 33-year-old Seabrook struggled last season as Chicago missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. He had seven goals and 19 assists in 81 games.
CHICAGO (AP) — Corey Crawford is skating again. The Stanley Cup-winning goaltender hasn't been cleared for practice just yet, but he thinks he is close.
Now about those defensemen for the Chicago Blackhawks.
While Crawford delivered a positive update Friday on his recovery from a concussion that sidelined him for most of last season, defensemen Connor Murphy, Brent Seabrook and Gustav Forsling missed the start of training camp due to injuries.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks enjoy an uncustomary luxury with space under the NHL's $79.5 million salary cap.
So general manager Stan Bowman hinted Saturday on the second day of the team's annual convention he could be in the market for a veteran player who might help the Blackhawks return to the playoffs.
Victor Hedman refused to go to sleep without a contract.
A full year before he could become a free agent, the hulking No. 1 defenseman told his agent he wanted to sign a long-term extension with the Tampa Bay Lightning the first day he could. Hedman put pen to paper on an eight-year contract well before the sun went down.
"It was never a doubt," Hedman said that day. "Staying in Tampa was the No. 1 priority."
CHICAGO (AP) — Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook played in his 1,000th regular-season game Thursday night, adding another accomplishment to his impressive career.
Seabrook started alongside fellow alternate captain and frequent defensive partner Duncan Keith and played almost 19 minutes in Chicago's 6-2 victory over Winnipeg. He has appeared in 77 of Chicago's 78 games this season.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks are in an uncertain and wholly unfamiliar place.
They know they will not have the opportunity to compete for the Stanley Cup, and morale is low. A franchise used to preparing for the playoffs has been relegated to finishing the season feeling good about itself.
And maybe look to see who will make up next year's squad.
CHICAGO (AP) — 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.
CHICAGO (AP) — Patrick Kane scored a tie-breaking power-play goal with 3:16 left in the third period and had an assist, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins 3-1 on Sunday afternoon.
CHICAGO (AP) — William Nylander scored on a penalty shot 6 seconds into overtime to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 win over the sagging Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.
CHICAGO (AP) — Chris Stewart and the injury-depleted Minnesota Wild got the breaks they needed for their first victory of the season.
Stewart broke a tie midway through the third period with the first of his two goals and the Wild beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-2 on Thursday night.
Jason Zucker had a goal and an assist, and Devan Dubnyk made 36 saves to help the Wild (1-1-1) hand Chicago (3-1-1) its first regulation loss.
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville played 12-plus seasons in the NHL as a steady defenseman. The outlook for his team's blue line corps heading into the 2017-18 season is anything but stable.
Quenneville, entering his 10th year behind the team's bench, struggled to name more than four defensemen who are in Chicago's mix during a session Saturday at the team's annual fan convention.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — After posting two of the top four records in the NHL in the regular season, the Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets both need to find out a way to get a win on the road or their playoff runs will end almost as soon as they began.
The Blackhawks were shut out twice at home by Nashville and then blew a 2-0 lead in Game 3 to fall behind 3-0 in the series. Game 4 is Thursday night.
DENVER (AP) — Five goals by players all 24 and under — just the sort of youthful infusion the Chicago Blackhawks were searching for.
That takes some of the pressure off Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and the rest of the veterans.
Vinnie Hinostroza scored twice in the third period, including the go-ahead goal with 11:49 remaining, and the Blackhawks rallied for a 6-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A disputed tripping call turned things in Chicago's favor.
Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist to lead the Blackhawks to a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.
Kane scored with 5:12 left in the third period after Jonathan Toews tied it minutes earlier on a power play by tipping in Brent Seabrook's slap shot.
Artemi Panarin and the Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms Wednesday on a $12 million, two-year contract extension.
The reigning Calder Trophy winner will count $6 million against the salary cap in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons. Agent Tom Lynn confirmed the deal in an email to The Associated Press.
Panarin has 114 points in his first 117 NHL games. The 25-year-old Russian winger had 30 goals and 47 assists as a rookie last season, and has 15 goals and 22 assists in 37 games this season.
CHICAGO (AP) — Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook has been ruled out for a game against the New York Rangers due to an upper-body injury.
Seabrook got hurt in the second period of Tuesday night's 4-0 victory over Arizona. He awkwardly tumbled into the boards after a hit by Jordan Martinook.
Seabrook, who has two goals and 14 assists in 28 games, is day to day. The durable Seabrook missed just one regular-season game last season.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Corey Crawford has the Chicago Blackhawks on an early season roll.
Crawford stopped 27 shots and Artemi Panarin scored 25 seconds into overtime, leading the Blackhawks over the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Wednesday night for their seventh straight win.
Crawford won his sixth consecutive game while improving to 15-5-5 against the Blues.
Chicago has earned a point in nine straight games, thanks in part to Crawford, who has given up just six goals in his last six contests.
