Nov. 2, 2013 at 5:53 PM

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Brandon Bollig and Nick Leddy each supplied a goal and an assist Saturday, powering the Chicago Blackhawks over slumping Winnipeg 5-1.

Bollig's goal 54 seconds into the second period snapped a 1-1 tie and ignited a streak of three Chicago goals within a 5-minute span, capped by Leddy's tally on a slapshot from above the left circle.

Niklas Hjalmarsson, Patrick Sharp and Ben Smith also scored for the Blackhawks, who won a third straight and took their first victory in Winnipeg since the Jets moved there from Atlanta in 2011.

Corey Crawford stopped 26-of-27 shots.

Tobias Enstrom got the only goal for the Jets, who fell for the sixth time in seven games.

Ondrej Pavelec started in net and was lifted in the second period after surrendering four goals on 14 shots. Al Montoya turned aside 10-of-11 shots the rest of the way.
