NHL.com @NHL

CHICAGO - There was no relief on the road for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The slumping Leafs fell 5-4 to the Chicago Blackhawks one night after fans chanted for head coach Ron Wilson to be fired during a loss at home to Florida.

Marian Hossa scored twice as the struggling Blackhawks overcame an early two-goal deficit and ended a three-game losing streak.

Hossa's goal late in the second period gave the Blackhawks their first lead at 4-3. He added an empty-net goal with 16 seconds left that turned out to be the game-winner after Toronto's Mike Brown scored with four seconds remaining.

Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist for the Blackhawks, and rookies Marcus Kruger and Andrew Shaw also scored for Chicago, which won for only the fifth time in its last 17 contests.

Tyler Bozak, Joffrey Lupul and Clarke MacArthur scored in the first period for the slumping Maple Leafs, who lost their sixth straight.
