Kane Gives Blackhawks 3-2 Win Over Flames
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Patrick Kane scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal with 18 seconds left, and the Chicago Blackhawks rallied for three straight goals in the third period to beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 on Wednesday night.
Patrick Sharp also scored for Chicago (18-4-4), the top team in the NHL. The defending Stanley Cup champions improved to 4-1-0 with two stops to go on their seven-game road trip.
Matt Stajan and Sean Monahan scored for the Flames, who are 1-5-2 in their last eight home games.
After Sven Baertschi lost the puck at the Calgary blue line, a shot from Niklas Hjalmarsson caromed sharply off the skate of Flames defenseman Chris Butler. The puck went straight to Kane at the side of the net, where he spun and lifted a backhand over goalie Reto Berra.
