For the second straight night, 60 minutes was not enough in Southern California, but unlike Saturday's game in LA, the Blackhawks came out victorious in overtime, 3-2.

It was Chicago's first road win of the season and the second time they've won in the second game of a back-to-back just a month into the year. 

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Patrick Kane with a goal and an assist on the night, assisting on the second goal and scoring the game winner just 24 seconds into overtime. 

STAT OF THE NIGHT: With the game's opening goal, Adam Boqvist became the third Blackhawk this season to score his first NHL goal in his second game (Dominik Kubalik, Kirby Dach)

UP NEXT: Chicago closes out their four-game road trip on Tuesday night in San Jose against the Sharks at 9 p.m.


The Blackhawks power play picked up where it left off on Satuday night in LA, with the second unit of Jonathan Toews, Alex Nylander, Kubalik, Dach and Boqvist creating chances that eventually led to Boqvist's first NHL tally at 9:21 of the first, seconds after the opening man advantage expired. Nylander, near the bottom of the circle, found Boqvist at the top of the circle, where the 2018 first-round pick took a quick snap shot on target that rang off the pipe and in for a 1-0 lead.

Back on the power play, Kane slid a silky pass across the top of the crease on a 5-on-3, finding Alex DeBrincat on the near side for a one-timer that gave the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead at 15:33 of the opening frame.

Anaheim would get on the board near the game's midpoint as Ryan Getzlaf found the scoresheet in his 1,000th NHL game, assisting on a Sam Steel slap shot from the point through traffic that beat Robin Lehner at 12:39 of the second. 

The Ducks would strike on the power play at 6:17 of the third to tie the game 2-2 as Nick Ritchie took a cross-ice feed from Steel and beat Lehner for his second of the season. 

For the second straight night, the Blackhawks would head to the extra frame, where just 24 seconds in, Toews found Kane on a 2-on-1 for the 3-2 OT win. The win also marked Lehner's 100th career victory.
