Patric Hornqvist, Sergei Kostitsyn and defenseman Kevin Klein each recorded a goal and an assist as the Nashville Predators stretched their home winning streak to four games with a 5-2 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.
Craig Smith and Colin Wilson also scored while David Legwand notched a pair of assists for Nashville, which has won 11 of 13 at home and 10 of 12 overall.
Less than 2 1/2 minutes after Marian Hossa gave Chicago a 1-0 lead late in the first period, Smith buried a rebound during a power play to kick off a run of four consecutive goals for the Predators.
Klein gave Nashville the lead for good at 5:15 of the middle session when his seemingly innocent shot from the red line bounced past Corey Crawford. Wilson converted a cross-crease pass from Legwand and Kostitsyn scored on a breakaway to give the Predators a 4-1 advantage after 40 minutes.
Hossa reached the 20-goal mark for the 12th straight season when he beat Pekka Rinne on a breakaway 48 seconds into the third. Hornqvist completed the scoring with a tip-in 2:20 later.
Crawford allowed four goals on 17 shots before being replaced by Ray Emery, who finished with five saves.
The Blackhawks dropped their fourth straight road contest and lost in regulation for the first time in eight overall games (5-1-2).
