Sharp scores in SO, Blackhawks top Panthers 3-2
October 22, 2013 (AP) – Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp each scored in the shootout to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.
Toews also scored in regulation, Bryan Bickell added a goal and Corey Crawford made 20 saves.
Sharp beat goalie Jacob Markstrom on the glove side for the deciding goal. The Blackhawks have won five of their past six games and extended their point streak to six games.
Florida has lost four of its last five games and has lost to Chicago four straight times.
Dmitry Kulikov and Tomas Fleischmann scored for the Panthers and Tim Thomas stopped 25 shots before leaving with 2:59 left in the game due to an apparent lower body injury. Markstrom entered the game and made two saves.
