RAPID REACTION: Despite two goals from their captain and a game-tying score with less than 10 seconds left on the clock in regulation, the Blackhawks fell 4-3 in overtime to the visiting Winnipeg Jets.

Mark Scheifele scored his 19th of the season at 14:18 of the first, giving Winnipeg their 32nd power-play goal of the year.

Jonathan Toews tied things up at 19:49 of the first when he stepped into the slot and roofed a shot past Laurent Brossoit. He later hammered home a one-timer at 13:07 of the middle frame to give the Blackhawks a 2-1 edge.

Toews now has three goals and an assist in the two games on this homestand.
