CHICAGO, IL -- Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa each had a goal and assist to help the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-1 win against the Calgary Flames at United Center on Sunday.

The Blackhawks (10-7-1) are 8-2-1 at home and 7-0-0 when leading after two periods. It was their second sweep of a back-to-back set.

Scott Darling, in his first start since allowing five goals in a 5-4 loss at the Minnesota Wild on Oct. 30, made 25 saves. He is 2-2-0.

Artemi Panarin and Jonathan Toews also scored for Chicago.

With an assist on Hossa's goal, Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith had one in each of his first two games since returning Saturday from surgery to repair a tear in his right meniscus Oct. 20.

Kane, who leads the NHL in goals (13) and scoring (28 points), has a career-high seven-game goal streak and a League-high 13-game point streak.

David Jones scored for Calgary (6-12-1), which got 37 saves from Karri Ramo in his eighth straight start.

The first period ended scoreless, with the Blackhawks holding a 10-4 lead in shots.

Jones scored his sixth goal off a rebound of a shot by Kris Russell to give Calgary a 1-0 lead at 3:41.

Kane, Hossa and Panarin scored three straight goals in 1:55 to give the Blackhawks a 3-1 lead.

Kane scored the first one with a backhand shot off a rebound at 6:37 to extend his streaks, Hossa scored off a point shot at 7:40 for Chicago's first lead, and Kane fed Panarin at 8:32 with a pass from below the goal line for a snap shot that beat Ramo to the glove side.

Darling made 11 saves in the second period, including seven during two unsuccessful power plays for the Flames.

Toews scored an empty-net goal with 38 seconds left.

The Blackhawks begin their annual "Circus Trip" on Wednesday against the Edmonton Oilers. They'll play six games over 10 days in Western Canada and California.
