CHICAGO — Sergey Kalinin scored a power-play goal with 2:27 left and the New Jersey Devils beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 Thursday night for their second victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions in a week.
With Patrick Kane off for high sticking, Corey Crawford stopped Kyle Palmieri’s shot from the left circle. But Kalinin was alone at the edge of the crease and slipped the rebound in the net.
Adam Henrique and Palmieri scored in the second to put New Jersey ahead, Cory Schneider made 27 saves and the Devils rebounded after a 2-0 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday night. New Jersey has won three of four — including a 4-2 win over Chicago last Friday night — and is 9-3-0 after starting 0-3-1.
Chicago rookie Artemi Panarin scored from a sharp angle with 6:41 left in the third. Kane assisted on that one and scored a 5-on-3 goal in the first to extend his point streak to 11 games.
