Toews' short-handed goal in 3rd period lifts Blackhawks to 3-2 win over Hurricanes

CHICAGO - Jonathan Toews' short-handed breakaway goal early in the third period snapped a tie, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 on Friday night.

Patrick Sharp scored his team-leading 30th goal and Kris Versteeg ended an eight-game drought to help the Blackhawks win without leading scorer Patrick Kane, who was placed on long-term injured reserve after sustaining a lower-body injury in Chicago's victory over St. Louis on Wednesday.

Corey Crawford made 26 saves.

Alexander Semin scored his 20th and 21st goals as the Hurricanes fought back from a two-goal deficit, but lost to Chicago for the second time this season. The Blackhawks beat the Hurricanes in a road shootout on Oct. 15 in their only other meeting this season.

Anton Khudobin stopped 22 shots after a career-best 46 saves in Carolina's win at Columbus on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
