The Blackhawks' Patrick Kane (88) celebrated his goal in the second period with Jonathan Toews.

Patrick Kane had another big night and the Chicago Blackhawks won again.

The fact that they exacted a bit of revenge on Raffi Torres and routed the Phoenix team that ousted them from last season’s playoffs only made it sweeter.

Kane had two goals and an assist, and the Blackhawks remained the only NHL team without a loss in regulation this season by beating the host Coyotes, 6-2, Thursday night.

Viktor Stalberg, Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bickell each had a goal and an assist as the Blackhawks improved to 9-0-2. Dave Bolland also scored for Chicago.

‘‘We feel good right now,’’ coach Joel Quenneville said. ‘‘We’ve been consistent in our games.’’

The evening began, as anyone paying attention should have anticipated, with Chicago’s Jamal Mayers fighting Torres, in his third game back after a 21-game suspension for a vicious hit on the Blackhawks’ Marian Hossa in last year’s playoffs.

A few moments later, Chicago led, 4-0, and this one was over.

In another late game, Toronto defeated Winnipeg, 3-2.

Phil Kessel scored his first goal of the season late in the third period to lift the Maple Leafs over the Jets.

Tyler Bozak scored shorthanded and Matt Frattin added a goal for the Leafs, who won their second straight of a three-game road trip.

Kessel’s goal ended a frustrating drought for the top-line winger who had 37 goals last season.
