Boston — Duncan Keith scored two goals and assisted on another to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins, 5-2, on Thursday night for their fifth straight win.
The Bruins opened a 2-0 lead in the first 8:02, but Keith and Tomas Kopecky tied it before the end of the first period. Andrew Ladd gave Chicago the lead 102 seconds into the second, and Keith made it 4-2 midway through the period.
Patrick Kane's shot from the slot made it 5-2 with just over two minutes left.
Antti Niemi made 19 saves to help Chicago retake the top spot in the Western Conference, with 65 points to 63 for idle San Jose.
