Kane scores 3 times as Blackhawks beat Wild 5-3

CHICAGO (AP) While the Chicago Blackhawks have a whole bunch of issues at the moment, they also have Patrick Kane.

Kane scored three goals for his first hat trick of the season, and the Blackhawks stopped a four-game slide by topping the Minnesota Wild 5-3 on Sunday night.

Brandon Saad and David Kampf also scored for Chicago, which had dropped seven of nine overall. Jonathan Toews had three assists, and Robin Lehner made 23 stops.
