(Reuters) - Highlights of Thursday's National Hockey League games:

Blackhawks 3, Bruins 2

The Chicago Blackhawks built a 3-0 second-period lead and then held off the Boston Bruins for their eighth consecutive victory.

Goaltender Scott Darling, filling in for the injured Corey Crawford, finished with 32 stops as the rampant Blackhawks improved to 20-8-1.

Kings 5, Senators 3

The Los Angeles Kings spoiled the head-coaching debut of Ottawa's Dave Cameron by beating the Senators.

Goals by centers Anze Kopitar and Trevor Lewis 1:42 apart early in the third period broke a 2-2 tie and helped the Kings end a two-game losing run.   Continued...
