The Chicago Blackhawks extended their unbeaten start to the shortened NHL season to three games with a 3-2 win over the St Louis Blues.

The Central Division rivals both had 2-0 records going into the game but it was Chicago who prevailed, going up 3-0 before a late rally from the visitors made it close.

Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook and Viktor Stalberg scored for the Blackhawks and goalie Corey Crawford made 32 saves but was beaten in the third quarter by Andy McDonald and TJ Oshie.

The Nashville Predators, also of the Central Division, won 3-1 against the Minnesota Wild in their first of seven successive away games. Dany Heatley, Martin Erat and David Legwand scored the goals.

The Detroit Red Wings currently prop up the division after losing 2-1 to the Dallas Stars, Michael Ryder scoring both Dallas goals.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Lightning claimed a 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, while fellow Southeast Division outfit the Winnipeg Jets beat the Washington Capitals 4-2.

The New Jersey Devils made it back-to-back wins with a 3-0 success against the Philadelphia Flyers, who have now started their season with three straight defeats.

The Montreal Canadiens, Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks all managed to get their first wins of the season on the board.
