Pierre-Luc Dubois and Saku Maenalanen each scored twice to help the Winnipeg Jets to a 7-2 win against the host Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.

Kyle Connor had a goal and two assists, Josh Morrissey had three assists and Blake Wheeler had two assists for the Jets, who are 8-3-0 in their past 11 games. Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves.

Taylor Raddysh and Jujhar Khaira scored, and Petr Mrazek made 37 saves for the Blackhawks, who have dropped seven straight (0-6-1).

Chicago appeared to score when Andreas Athanasiou poked home a bouncing puck just over six minutes into the first period, but video review showed forward Max Domi was offside and the goal was overturned.

The Jets later took a 1-0 lead when Adam Lowry picked up the loose puck by the net below the goal line and fed Jansen Harkins in front at 14:51 of the first period.

Maenalanen doubled the lead at 2:55 of the second period off a rebound that bounced out to him low in the left circle.

The Blackhawks responded 17 seconds later when Raddysh got on a loose puck just below the bottom of the left circle to cut it to 2-1.

Connor connected on a two-man advantage to put the Jets ahead 3-1 at 8:37, blasting a one-timer from the right circle, and Maenalanen beat Mrazek top corner on the far side from the left faceoff dot to extend it to 4-1 just over a minute later.

Khaira narrowed it to 4-2 on the power play at 15:09, taking a rebound off the end boards and lifting it into the net from the left side.

Mark Scheifele snapped a five-game goal drought to push it to 5-2 at 18:57, one-timing a feed from Wheeler at the right inner hashmarks.

Dubois made it 6-2 at 4:37 of the third period when his sharp angle shot from the low wall deflected off the stick of Chicago defenseman Filip Roos in front, and added his second when he tipped Morrissey's shot on the power play at 12:10.
