Jonathan Toews scored on a penalty shot to start Chicago's four-goal first period against New York backup Martin Biron, and the Blackhawks emphatically snapped a nine- game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers on Thursday night.

The answer didn't seem to matter to the Chicago Blackhawks after a 7-1 win over the Washington Capitals, one that snapped an eight-game losing streak and featured an offensive outburst that captain Jonathan Toews said was "a long time coming," per Mark Lazerus of the Sun Times.

The sentiment was shared by head coach Joel Quenneville:

The win, while encouraging, still leaves the Blackhawks with quite a hole to climb out of. Through 59 games, Chicago has posted a 25-26-8 record with a minus-1 goal differential, and there remains an 11-point gap between the Blackhawks and the Minnesota Wild, who hold the second wild-card spot in the West.

Quenneville, for one, remains hopeful:

Chicago's next game is Monday against the Los Angeles Kings.
