CHICAGO (AP) — Gabriel Landeskog scored two power-play goals, and the Colorado Avalanche topped the Chicago Blackhawks 6-4 for their ninth straight win.

Western Conference-leading Colorado extended its point streak to 15 games, surviving a wild finish. J.T. Compher and Alex Newhook also scored, and Nazem Kadri and Cale Makar added empty-netters.

The Avalanche played without center Nathan MacKinnon, who missed the first of at least three games because of a concussion and facial fracture.

Patrick Kane and Brandon Hagel each scored twice for the Blackhawks, who trailed 3-0 early in the third period. Dylan Strome had two assists.
