The Blackhawks Moms stayed perfect as Chicago took a 2-1 shootout win over the New Jersey Devils, capping off a 2-0-0 Moms Trip. Alex DeBrincat scored the regulation goal and Kirby Dach the shootout winner in the win. 

PLAYER OF THE GAME: DeBrincat scored the second-period equalizer to secure a point and tied the team-high in shots with six. 

STAT OF THE NIGHT: With the shootout win, Corey Crawford picked up his 250th career victory. He's just the third Chiacgo netminder to reach the mark, trailing only Tony Esposito (418) and Glenn Hall (276).

UP NEXT: Chicago returns home to face the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday for Foundation Night at the United Center (TICKETS).

 
GAME RECAP

The Devils took the game's opening advantage on their third power play in the first period as Taylor Hall found his fifth of the season. The winger collected the puck at the top of the nearside circle and fired a wrister through a screen in front to beat Crawford for a 1-0 lead at 13:31. 

DeBrincat scored his second of the Moms Trip in the middle frame to tie the game, 1-1. As the Blackhawks enjoyed their first power play of the night, Patrick Kane took a shot from the near dot that fell to DeBrincat all alone backdoor, where he put home his seventh of the year at 9:35.

Without a goal in the third period or in overtime, the game headed to a shootout. Jonathan Toews and Kane scored in the opening two rounds, but it was Dach in the fifth round scoring while fellow 2019 first-round pick Jack Hughes was denied by Crawford to seal the 2-1 shootout win.
