CHICAGO - Duncan Keith and Andrew Shaw scored in a 39-second span at the start of Chicago's five-goal second period Wednesday night, sparking the Blackhawks to a 7-2 victory over Ray Emery and the Philadelphia Flyers.

Patrick Sharp had a goal and two assists for Chicago, which has won three in a row after a three-game losing streak. Michal Handzus scored a short-handed goal in the second and Marian Hossa had three assists, helping rookie goaltender Antti Raanta win his second consecutive start in place of injured Corey Crawford.

The seven goals set a season high for the Blackhawks (23-6-5), who have scored 19 times during their winning streak and lead the NHL with 129 goals. Shaw's nifty wraparound at 1:22 of the second made it six players with at least 10 goals for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who are once again on top of the league standings with 51 points.

Emery was pulled in the third period of his first start in Chicago since he teamed with Crawford to give the Blackhawks one of the best goaltending tandems in the league last season. He signed a free-agent deal with Philadelphia in July.

Jakub Voracek and Steve Downie scored power-play goals for the Flyers, who have lost three straight.

KINGS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 1

TORONTO (AP) — Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period and Los Angeles beat Toronto for its fifth straight victory.

Carter beat former teammate Jonathan Bernier with a wrist shot between the legs on a 2-on-1 break for his eighth of the season. Kyle Clifford added an insurance goal with 1:59 remaining and Drew Doughty also scored for Los Angeles.

Following a 6-0 victory Tuesday night in Montreal, the Kings improved to 12-1-4 in their last 17 games.

Martin Jones, a 23-year-old rookie, made 38 saves to earn his fourth win in four NHL starts.

Cody Franson scored his first of the season for Toronto.

Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
