Goal Off Steal Nets Chicago's 4th Straight Win

CHICAGO -- Eric Weinrich stole Brett Hull's poor clearing attempt and scored the go-ahead goal with 16:05 to play, lifting the Chicago Blackhawks to a 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Blues.


Hull scored to make it 3-3 early in the third period. But shortly thereafter, his weak bank off the boards was intercepted at the right point by Weinrich, who slapped the puck past goalie Jon Casey.


Brent Sutter put the Blackhawks up 5-3. But after Casey stopped Sutter and Tony Amonte on breakaways, Yuri Khmylev scored for St. Louis with 6:29 to go. Amonte then scored to clinch the Blackhawks' fourth consecutive victory Thursday.


Enrico Ciccone, James Black and Ethan Moreau also scored for Chicago. Chris Pronger and Jim Campbell had the other goals for the Blues, who have lost three of their last four games.


Devils 3, Sharks 1. At East Rutherford, New Jersey, Bill Guerin and Dave Andreychuk scored 16 seconds apart in the third period to lead New Jersey past San Jose.


John MacLean added his first goal of the season for the Devils, who entered the game with an NHL-low 13 goals after six games.


Three penalties against San Jose in the final 3:56 of the second period got the Devils on track. MacLean tied the game on the second power play, beating Kelly Hrudey with a shot from the left faceoff circle.


Owen Nolan had a first-period goal for the Sharks.


Whalers 4, Mighty Ducks 1. At Hartford, Connecticut, Geoff Sanderson scored two third-period goals and Jason Muzzatti stopped 32 of 33 shots as Hartford beat Anaheim for its first 4-0 home start in team history.


Glen Wesley and Paul Ranheim also scored for Hartford, which leads the Northeast Division with 10 points at 5-1-0 after missing the playoffs four straight years. Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks, who have lost six straight to drop to 1-7-2.
