ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane keyed a four-goal second period with a goal and assist apiece and goalie Corey Crawford had a strong game for the second straight day as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the St. Louis Blues 5-3 on Monday.

Viktor Stalberg and Dave Bolland got the tying goals 1 minute apart early in the second period for the Blackhawks, who trailed 2-0 after the first. Crawford made 31 saves a day after thwarting Pittsburgh in a shootout.

Marian Hossa added an empty-netter with less than a second to go to help Chicago improve to 3-1 without ailing coach Joel Quenneville, recovering from gastrointestinal bleeding caused by an ulcer.

Andy McDonald and Brad Boyes gave the Blues the two-goal lead in the opening period, and Alex Pietrangelo pulled St. Louis within a goal at 8:48 of the third.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Matt Moulson scored three times for his second straight multigoal game, Al Montoya stopped 20 shots and the Islanders cruised past Florida.

Moulson got the Islanders going 7:40 in and added his 25th goal with 5:02 left in the first period, when New York outshot Florida 16-3. Radek Martinek added a power-play goal in the second, and Josh Bailey scored to turn it into a rout.

Moulson completed his hat trick and took the team lead in goals by scoring an empty-netter with 2:37 left.

Montoya has been quite a find for the Islanders, who have used six goalies this season because of injuries. On Saturday, he became the first Islander to post a shutout in his first start when New York topped Los Angeles 3-0.
