CHICAGO (AP) - Denis Arkhipov ended Chicago's losing streak at 10, scoring a power-play goal at 2:53 of overtime to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday.

Arkhipov beat Miikka Kiprusoff with a high screened shot from the right circle.

Arkhipov had deflected in Duncan Keith's shot from left wing with 44 seconds left to tie it 3-3 and set up overtime.

Chicago won for the first time since Jan. 2 in St. Louis, ending an 0-8-2 slide. The Blackhawks also won for the first time at home since Dec. 26, stopping an 0-6-2 run.

Alex Tanguay scored on a breakaway with 3:17 left in the third to give Calgary a 3-2 lead. Tanguay took a long pass from Matthew Lombardi, slipped past defenceman James Wisniewski and beat Nikolai Khabibulin with a shot high on the stick side.

Calgary's Daymond Langkow and Kristian Huselius scored power-play goals 1:49 apart late in the second period to erase Chicago's a 2-0 lead. Tanguay assisted on both goals.

Wisniewski and Jeff Hamilton also scored in regulation for the Blackhawks.

Chicago's Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 19 shots.

Kiprusoff made 36 saves in his 10th straight start.

Huselius extended his point scoring streak to nine games. He has six goals and seven assists during the span.

The Blackhawks scored the winning goal on their eighth power-play chance after failing to convert seven previous opportunities. In their last 11 games, the Blackhawks have scored just four power-play goals in 50 chances.

Wisniewski scored the only goal of the first period at 9:21, two seconds after a penalty to Calgary's Marcus Nilson expired.

Wisniewski beat Kiprusoff with a high shot on the glove side from the right circle to complete a crisp passing sequence with Tuomo Ruutu and Peter Bondra.

Hamilton made it 2-0 at 2:35 of the second. Although he was apparently covered by two Flames players at the edge of the crease, Hamilton was able to turn and slide in a forehand shot after taking a feed from Patrick Sharp.
