CHICAGO (AP) — Dave Bolland scored the go-ahead goal in the third period when his centering attempt hit the stick of St. Louis’ David Backes and went in and the Chicago Blackhawks rallied to beat the Blues 3-1 Sunday for their third straight victory.
Corey Crawford made 29 saves for the Blackhawks, who did all their scoring in the final period.
Duncan Keith had the tying goal in the third for Chicago, playing its first home game since Jan. 24. Andy McDonald scored in the first for the Blues, who took the 1-0 lead into the final period behind a tough defense and the goaltending of Brian Elliott, who was going for his second straight shutout.
Marian Hossa added an empty netter with 49 seconds to go for Chicago.
