KDWN

CHICAGO (AP) — Andrew Shaw and Duncan Keith each had a goal and an assist, and the Chicago Blackhawks held on for a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

Kris Versteeg and Marian Hossa also scored for Chicago, which needs just one more point to clinch a playoff berth for the sixth straight season. Patrick Sharp added two assists to help Chicago finish 4-1 against Dallas in the Central Division rivals’ regular-season series.

Ryan Garbutt scored twice for the Stars, who fell three points behind Phoenix for the final Western Conference playoff berth.

Chicago’s Corey Crawford made 25 saves, while Dallas’ Kari Lehtonen blocked 38 shots.

Dallas’s Tyler Seguin set up Garbutt’s goal in the second period to extend his point streak to 10 games. He has seven goals and 10 assists during the run.

Blackhawks top prospect Teuvo Teravainen didn’t record a point in his NHL debut.
