CHICAGO (AP) — Sheldon Souray scored the go-ahead goal with 2:08 left, Jonas Hiller made 25 saves and the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 on Friday to end a four-game losing streak.

Souray’s drive through a screen from the left point hit the stick of Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson and deflected past Ray Emery, who suffered his first loss of the season.

Anaheim’s Corey Perry scored at 1:15 of the second period in the meeting of the top two teams in the Western Conference, played before a season-high crowd of 22,105.

Chicago’s Patrick Kane scored a power-play goal at 2:26 of the third period to extend his point streak to eight games. He has six goals and nine assists during the span.

Anaheim, which had been outscored 15-6 during its slide, tightened up defensively and checked Chicago closely through much of the game.

Emery made 22 saves.
