Blackhawks Get 4th Straight Win, Beat Canucks 5-1

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Andrew Brunette and Patrick Kane scored power-play goals midway through the second period, and the Chicago Blackhawks rallied from an early deficit to win their fourth straight game, 5-1 over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night.

The Canucks, who beat the Blackhawks in Chicago 6-2 earlier this month, led 1-0 before Brunette and Kane took advantage of the game’s first two power plays. Vancouver scored on five of six advantages in the earlier meeting.

Jonathan Toews scored his fifth goal in four games, Patrick Sharp added a goal 1:49 later in the third period, and Steve Montador also scored to complete the rout.

Jannik Hansen scored for the Canucks against goalie Corey Crawford, who made 28 saves.
