Collin Delia made 43 saves in his second start of the season, leading the visiting Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-3 shootout win against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.

Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat each had a goal and an assist while Sam Lafferty also scored for the Blackhawks, who earned a 4-2 road victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

DeBrincat scored the lone goal of the three-round shootout.

Phillip Danault scored two goals, Trevor Moore had the other and Sean Durzi registered three assists for the Kings, who have alternated losses and wins over their past seven games. Jonathan Quick stopped 28 shots.

Danault tied the score 3-3 with 10:53 left in regulation, following up after Delia made back-to-back saves on him by scoring his 21st goal of the season.

Kane scored for the second straight night when he chipped in a shot that ricocheted off the end boards for a 1-0 lead at 16:44 of the first period.

Moore scored his fourth short-handed goal of the season to tie the score 1-1 at 2:13 of the second period.

Dylan Strome had the puck behind the Los Angeles net when he passed to DeBrincat coming through the right circle, and DeBrincat also scored for the second straight night to make it 2-1 at 12:41 of the second.

Kane also had an assist on the play to give him 23 points in his past 11 games.

The Kings went on a power play late in the middle period and Danault pushed in a loose puck to tie the score 2-2 at 16:50.

Chicago moved back ahead 3-2 at 18:09 of the second when Lafferty pulled the puck to his backhand and shot it around Quick’s outstretched right pad.

Viktor Arvidsson returned for the Kings after missing eight games with a lower-body injury, and he assisted on Danault’s second goal. Arvidsson ranks third on the team in goals (18) and is tied for third in points (39).
