PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane beat Marc-Andre Fleury in a shootout to lift the Chicago Blackhawks over the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Toews flipped a shot between Fleury's legs in the first round, and Kane followed with a wrist shot over Fleury's glove to help the Blackhawks win in Pittsburgh for just the second time in 17 years.

David Rundblad and Marian Hossa scored in regulation for Chicago. Corey Crawford made 33 saves and held Pittsburgh's David Perron and Sidney Crosby in check in the shootout.

Zach Sill and Steve Downie scored for Pittsburgh. Fleury stopped 24 shots but the Penguins limped into the All-Star break with their fourth straight loss.

The Penguins played without defenseman Kris Letang and center Evgeni Malkin.
