Jason Dickinson’s two tallies take Blackhawks past Flames

Blackhawks, Flames

Jason Dickinson scored twice to help the Chicago Blackhawks earn a 3-1 win against the visiting Calgary Flames on Tuesday.

Landon Slaggert and Joey Anderson each had two assists for the Blackhawks (21-46-5, 47 points), who have won three of their past five games. Seth Jones added a goal and Petr Mrazek made 39 saves as Chicago posted its second consecutive victory.

MacKenzie Weegar scored and Jacob Markstrom made 24 saves for the Flames (33-33-5, 71 points), who have lost four in a row.

Jones scored on a power play to give Chicago a 1-0 lead at 3:35 of the first period. Connor Bedard sent a cross-ice pass above the circles to Philipp Kurashev on the right, and Kurashev quickly dished off to Jones, who blasted a slap shot from above the slot and beat a screened Markstrom glove side.

Dickinson made it 2-0 at 15:15 of the first. Anderson collected Slaggert’s backhand pass out of the Blackhawks’ zone to create a two-on-one with Dickinson, carrying it to the left circle before feeding him for a one-timer from the right circle.

Chicago outshot Calgary 15-5 in the opening frame.

The Flames pushed on in the second period, outshooting the Blackhawks 14-4. The visitors had a pair of chances, including a pair of power plays in just over three minutes, but couldn’t beat Mrazek.

The Blackhawks came close to adding to their lead with just over five minutes to go in the middle period.

Markstrom came out of his net and dived toward the right circle after the puck bounced off the end boards and missed his stick. Slaggert beat him to the puck and took it below the circle, but Weegar got his body and stick in the way to deny the rookie of his first NHL goal.

Dickinson pushed the margin to 3-0 at 4:15 of the third period. Anderson found him in the slot, and Dickinson fired a wrist shot past Markstrom’s glove.

Slaggert again came close to his first tally 7 1/2 minutes into the final frame with a shot that hit the crossbar and fell behind Markstrom but stayed out of the net.

Weegar cut it to 3-1 at 12:25 with a wrist shot up the middle that went blocker-side past a screened Mrazek.

The Flames outshot the Blackhawks 21-8 in the third.
