CHICAGO, April 7 (UPI) -- Jonathan Toews scored with 1:41 to play in overtime Wednesday, giving the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over St. Louis.

The Blackhawks, who began the night tied with Anaheim for seventh place in the Western Conference, halted a two-game skid.

Chicago faced a two-goal deficit as the game neared its midway point but Marian Hossa, Tomas Kopecky and Nick Leddy all scored in the second period to put the Blackhawks in front.

St. Louis tied it on a wrist shot by Chris Stewart with 10:16 to play in regulation.

Corey Crawford, who was appearing in his 25th straight game for the Blackhawks, made 21 saves to get the win. Ty Conklin played in his 200th NHL game for the Blues and took the loss while stopping 35 shots.

The goal by Hossa that started the Chicago rally bounced off a skate and just slipped over the goal line. It took the officials 8 minutes of reviewing time to decide that Hossa did not intentionally kick the puck into the net.
