CHICAGO - Tomas Tartar scored in regulation and in the shootout, leading Jimmy Howard and the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

Gustav Nyquist also scored in the tiebreaker for Detroit, which won for just the third time in 11 shootouts this season. Darren Helm had a goal and an assist, and Howard made 32 saves through overtime.

Jonathan Toews gave Chicago the lead with a goal in the first round of the shootout, but Patrick Kane's backhander went off the crossbar, and Patrick Sharp was stopped by Crawford on the final attempt.

Brandon Saad and Kris Versteeg scored in regulation for Chicago, and Corey Crawford had 26 saves. The Blackhawks dropped to 2-0-3 on their season-high, eight-game homestand.

SENATORS 4, CANADIENS 2

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) ? Andrew Hammond made 42 saves in his first NHL start and led Ottawa over Montreal.

Milan Michalek, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Mark Stone and Kyle Turris, scored for the Senators (23-23-10). Defenceman Erik Karlsson had two assists for the fourth straight game.

Hammond stopped the first 26 shots he faced.

Dustin Tokarski made 35 saves, and Max Pacioretty and Nathan Beaulieu had goals for the Canadiens (37-16-4).

Hammond was called into action Monday to replace starter Robin Lehner, who was hurt in the second period against Carolina. Lehner was unable to play Wednesday. With Craig Anderson already out with a hand injury, Hammond got the start.

The Senators opened the third period with a 2-1 lead before Stone gave them some insurance with a power-play goal at 9:27.
