    Kane scores 400th goal as Blackhawks beat Red Wings 7-2

    CHICAGO — Patrick Kane scored his 400th career goal, Kevin Lankinen made a career-high 44 saves and the Chicago Blackhawks closed out a successful February in style, beating the Detroit Red Wings 7-2 on Sunday night. Kane and Alex DeBrincat got loose for a 2-on-1 midway through the third period. The 32-year-old Kane kept the puck, waited for sprawled Detroit defenceman Filip Hronek to slide by him and then beat Thomas Greiss on the stick side for his team-best 11th of the season. Kane pumped both of his arms after becoming the 100th NHL player to reach 400 goals. The three-time Stanley Cup champion is the fourth player in franchise history to reach the milestone, joining Hall of Famers Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita and longtime star Steve Larmer. Pius Suter, Ryan Carpenter, Dominik Kubalik and DeBrincat also scored in the third as Chicago broke open a tight game against last-place Detroit. Carpenter also scored in the first, DeBrincat added three assists and Kane posted a three-point night. Bouncing back nicely from a 5-3 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night, the Blackhawks closed out a 9-3-1 February with their third win in four games. Evgeny Svechnikov scored for the second straight game for Detroit, which had won two in a row. Sam Gagner also scored. The Red Wings played without captain Dylan Larkin for the second straight game because of an upper-body injury. They went 5-8-1 in February. Chicago jumped in front on Nikita Zadorov's first goal since he scored three times for Colorado in the playoffs last year. The 6-foot-6 defenceman, who was acquired in an October trade with the Avalanche, got a pass from David Kampf and beat Greiss from the high slot 11:41 into the first. The Blackhawks then caught a break when Carpenter's shot went off Red Wings defenceman Alex Biega in front and was inadvertently kicked in by a scrambling Greiss, making it 2-0 with 2:47 left in the opening period. The Red Wings, who put 21 shots on net in the first, got one back when Gagner redirected Jon Merrill's shot past Lankinen with 2:09 to go. It was Gagner's fourth goal in three games after he had a hat trick in Detroit's 5-2 victory against Nashville on Thursday night. UP NEXT Red Wings: Visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night. Blackhawks: Open a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night. ___ Jay Cohen can be reached at https://twitter.com/jcohenap ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Jay Cohen, The Associated Press
