The Blackhawks’ Seth Jones beat the Sabers 4-3 in overtime

CHICAGO (AP) – Seth Jones was frustrated after missing the net on a scoring opportunity in the second period.

The All-Star defender felt a lot better when the game was over.

Jones scored twice, including the winner 2:24 into overtime, and the Chicago Blackhawks cruised to a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabers on Tuesday night.

Philip Kurashev scored a goal and set up two assists for Chicago, and it was after an ugly 8-5 loss to Seattle on Saturday. Conor Murphy also scored, and Peter Mrazek made 30 saves.

The Blackhawks (12-26-4) won for the fourth time in five games, closing out 4-3-0 at home.

“We’ve been home for a while, so we wanted to put a good taste in the fans’ mouths and put on a show and give them a win tonight,” said Jones.

Buffalo (21-19-3) lost for the fifth time in six games. Tag Thompson, Victor Olofsson and Peyton Krebs scored for the Sabers, and Craig Anderson blocked 22 shots.

Chicago trailed 3-1 after two periods, but Jones rallied the Blackhawks in the third. Kurachev got a piece of Jones’ shot for his sixth at 1:34, and Jones tied it at 3 with a long wrist shot from the point with 56 seconds left.
