Patrick Sharp scores 2 goals and Blackhawks topple Devils 5-2

CHICAGO - Patrick Sharp scored twice and Patrick Kane, Bryan Bickell and Nick Leddy also connected to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.

Stephen Gionta and Michael Ryder had goals for the Devils, whose season-high four-game point streak (3-0-1) ended.

Kane has points in 12 straight games, matching his career high — set earlier this season and just before his run.

He has seven goals and 14 assists in his streak, and at least one point in all but one of his past 25 games, helping him climb into second in the NHL scoring race behind Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby.

Bickell's goal was his first since Nov. 10, but he missed 14 of Chicago's 19 games during that span with a knee injury.

Chicago rookie Antti Raanta blocked 10 shots in his seventh straight start — all since Blackhawks top goalie Corey Crawford suffered a lower-body injury on Dec. 8.

It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
