Mikkel Boedker and David Schlemko scored shootout goals to lift Phoenix to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night, snapping the Coyotes’ three-game losing streak and preserving their fading playoff hopes.

Schlemko beat Corey Crawford with a high shot for the deciding score in the third round of the tiebreaker to end Chicago’s seven-game winning streak

Rostislav Klesla and Radim Vrbata scored in the first period for Phoenix.

Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook scored two power-play goals in regulation for his first two-goal game this season and second of his career.

Despite the loss, league-leading Chicago has points in 11 straight games (9-0-2).
