RALEIGH, N.C. Patrick Sharp scored in the shootout and the Chicago Blackhawks claimed the 2,500th victory in club history by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 Tuesday night.

Sharp and Marian Hossa also scored 2:22 apart in the first period for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who blew a 2-0 lead in the third before winning in the tiebreaker.

Corey Crawford finished with 32 saves, then stopped three Carolina shooters in the shootout.

After Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews came up empty, Sharp beat Cam Ward with a nifty forehand in the third round.

Crawford then stuffed Jeff Skinner to end it, making the Blackhawks the last of the Original Six to reach the 2,500-win mark.

Alexander Semin and Ron Hainsey scored during Carolina's third-period rally.

Ward stopped 34 shots for Carolina.
