Blackhawks roll to 6-2 win over Panthers after G Crawford leaves with injury in 1st period

CHICAGO - Patrick Sharp had a goal and two assists, and the Chicago Blackhawks scored a season-high three times on the power play in a 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night.

The Blackhawks used their potent offence to win after starting goalie Corey Crawford left in the first period because of a lower-body injury.

Marian Hossa, Brent Seabrook and Brandon Saad each had goal and an assist, and Michal Handzus and Andrew Shaw also scored. Patrick Kane had three assists for Chicago, which ended a three-game losing streak — its longest regular-season skid since February 2012.

Rookie Antti Raanta, recalled after veteran backup Nikolai Khabublin was injured on Nov. 16, stopped 29 of 31 shots for the win in relief of Crawford, who made four saves.

Dylan Olsen and Marcel Goc scored for Florida.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
