Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane broke a nine-game scoring drought with the game-winner as the Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins 3-2 in a shootout.

Kane's goal, his first since December 28, was the deciding tally after teammate Jonathan Toews and Bruins left-wing Brad Marchand had tallied for each side in the shootout.

Boston centres Ryan Spooner and Patrice Bergeron missed their shootout attempts, as did Chicago forward Patrick Sharp.

It was the first meeting between the teams since last season's Stanley Cup finals.

After losing six of 10 games, Chicago (32-8-11) has now won three of the last four. Boston, meanwhile, fell to 30-15-3 for the season.

Eslewhere, defenseman Mark Barberio's first two career goals provided the Tampa Bay Lightning with extra offense in a 5-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

The New York Rangers moved into sole possession of second place in the Metropolitan Division after knocking off the Washington Capitals 4-1.
