Hossa has goal, 2 assists in Blackhawks' 4-1 victory over Red Wings

CHICAGO - Marian Hossa celebrated his return to the lineup with a goal and two assists, and the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Detroit Wings 4-1 on Sunday night to snap a two-game losing streak.

Ben Smith had a goal and assist, and Nick Leddy and Jonathan Toews scored for defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago, which is struggling to keep up with the top contenders in the Western Conference.

Despite the win, the Blackhawks are 11-8-7 in 2014 and remained fifth in the conference and third in the Central Division.

Gustav Nyquist scored for the injury-depleted Red Wings, who are desperate for wins as they try to get into the playoffs for the 23rd straight time.

Chicago's Corey Crawford made 19 saves and Detroit's Jimmy Howard had 26.
