CHICAGO (AP) — Taylor Raddysh scored three goals and the Chicago Blackhawks beat Boston 6-3 on Tuesday night, handing the NHL-leading Bruins a second straight regulation loss for the first time this season.
Raddysh’s first career hat trick has earned him 20 goals this season and six in his last four games. Chicago ended a three-game slide (0-2-1).
Boris Katchouk scored a decisive goal at 6:59 of the third period and added two assists for his first three-pointer.
Joey Anderson had a goal and an assist, and MacKenzie Entwistle also scored for Chicago, which tied for last place in the Western Conference.
Hampus Lindholm had a goal and an assist after missing the Bruins’ game in Detroit on Sunday with a swollen foot. Trent Frederic and Pavel Zacha also scored for Boston.
Bruins leading scorer David Pastrnak missed a penalty shot with 1:24 remaining.
Blackhawks goaltender Petr Mrazek, hampered by groin injuries the past two seasons, was replaced by Alex Stalock at 8:48 of the second period.
Mrazek, who stopped all 16 shots he faced, skated to the locker room sharply after falling to the ice to make a few close saves on Frederic to keep Chicago ahead 1-0. About a minute earlier, Dmitry Orlov’s slap shot hit Mrazek in the mask.
Stalock stopped 23 of 26 shots in relief.
Linus Ullmark made 23 saves for Boston.
The Bruins entered with a league-best 105 points. They became the fastest team in NHL history to reach 50 wins in a season by beating the Red Wings 3-2 in Boston on Saturday. But the Bruins lost 5-3 in Detroit on Sunday and are 1-3-0 in their last four games on the heels of a 10-game winning streak that propelled them to a big lead in the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference.
The Bruins got off to a second straight slow start in this one, the second of a five-game road trip.
Entwistle scored the only goal of the first period at 14:27. He cut to the net against left wing defenseman Connor Clifton and slid the puck under Ullmark’s right pad.
Lindholm tied the game with 5:02 left in the second on the third shot Stalock faced. With Jake DeBrusk screened, Lindholm’s high shot just inside the blue line hit the top right corner of the net.
Anderson put Chicago back in front 1:34 later, sending a loose puck to the right side of the net after Katchouk slipped it in front of the crease.
Frederic tied the game at 2 with 11.1 seconds left in the second. Stalock stopped Frederic’s close range point attempt but then accidentally knocked the puck off his pad.
Zacha was credited with giving Boston the lead at 3:02 of the third when his pass ticked off the skate of Chicago defenseman Jarred Tinordi. Raddysh equalized 53 seconds later, shoving the puck from a scrum on the doorstep.
Katchouk beat Ullmark on a 25-foot shot from right wing to end a 3-for-3 stalemate at 6:59. Tyler Bertuzzi’s shot with 8:46 to go slammed on the crossbar. It was ruled an on-ice tying goal, but overruled by a video review.
Raddysh made it 5-3 with a power play goal with 3:52 left. He completed his hat trick by shooting into an empty net with 45 seconds left.
