Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist, and the Chicago Blackhawks remained the only NHL team without a loss in regulation this season by routing the Phoenix Coyotes 6-2 Thursday night.

Viktor Stalberg, Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bickell each had a goal and an assist as the Blackhawks improved to 9-0-2. Dave Bolland also scored for Chicago.

Martin Hanzal and Raffi Torres scored for the Coyotes. Phoenix pulled goalie Mike Smith after Bickell scored Chicago's sixth goal with 4:52 left in the second period.

Kane's goals both came with a 5-on-3 advantage in the Blackhawks' four-goal first period. Kane has eight goals and 10 assists on the season.

Chicago's Patrick Sharp had three assists.

Penguins 5, Capitals 2: Sidney Crosby extended his points streak to six games with a goal and two assists for Pittsburgh.

Evgeni Malkin also added a goal and two assists while Pascal Dupuis, James Neal and Matt Cooke scored for the Penguins, who have won five straight and beat Washington at home in regulation for the first time in more than five years.

Rangers 4, Islanders 1: Teenage rookie J.T. Miller scored his first two NHL goals in his second career game to lift the Rangers. Miller, who won't turn 20 until March, gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead just 1:29 into the game.

  • The Islanders acquired veteran goalie Tim Thomas, who has said he won't play this season, in a trade from the Boston Bruins for a conditional second-round draft choice either next year or in 2015.

    The 38-year-old goalie is in the final season of a four-year deal that counts for $5 million against the salary cap and provides financial flexibility for the Bruins. The draft pick conditions are expected to center around whether or not he suits up for New York.

    Red Wings 5, Blues 1: Petr Mrazek made 26 saves in his NHL debut for Detroit. Mrazek, recalled from Grand Rapids on Monday, stopped the first 14 shots he faced. Jimmy Howard, the team's No. 1 goalie, was given the night off after starting the first nine games of the season.

    Canucks 4, Wilds 1: Cory Schneider made 22 saves and Mason Raymond had a power-play goal and an assist in the second period to lead Vancouver past sputtering Minnesota for its fourth straight win.

    Sharks: Defenseman Brent Burns, out since the start of the season with a lower body injury, was a full participant in the Sharks' 80-minute practice on Thursday. But Burns and coach Todd McLellan weren't about to offer a specific time frame for a possible return to the lineup.

    Burns will make the Sharks' upcoming trip, which begins Monday in Columbus.

    "Even if he's not ready to play, he's got to start training himself and preparing like he is playing," McLellan said. "There isn't catch up time available."
