CHICAGO - Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each had a goal and an assist to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-2 victory over Los Angeles on Monday night, snapping the Kings' seven-game winning streak.

Kane scored to tie it at 2, then set up Teuvo Teravainen's tiebreaking goal in the third as Chicago scored three goals in the final period.

After taking Toews' pass, Artem Anisimov added a short-handed breakaway goal with 1:33 left to complete the scoring, and the Blackhawks ended a two-game slide. Toews got his fifth goal in five games after not scoring in the opening seven contests to help Chicago win its sixth straight at home.

Alec Martinez scored his first goal of the season and Anze Kopitar got his fourth late in the first period to give the Kings a 2-1 lead.

Chicago's Corey Crawford made 33 saves and Los Angeles' Jonathan Quick stopped 22 shots.


TORONTO (AP) ? Joffrey Lupul had two goals and an assist, James Reimer stopped 43 shots, and Toronto got its first home win of the season.

Brad Boyes and Morgan Rielly also scored for the Maple Leafs, who had lost their first four at home (0-3-1).

Jamie Benn got his 10th goal of the season and Antti Niemi finished with 22 saves as the Stars snapped a three-game winning streak.

Boyes thought he had his second of the night late in the first, but it was overturned when Dallas challenged that the Maple Leafs were offside.


VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) ??? Jake Virtanen scored his first NHL goal and Ryan Miller made 27 saves to lead Vancouver.

Bo Horvat had a goal and an assist, and Jannik Hansen and Matt Bartkowksi also scored for the Canucks.

Claude Giroux scored for Philadelphia, while Steve Mason stopped 30 shots as the Flyers dropped their fourth in a row.

The Canucks announced Sunday that Virtanen and fellow 19-year-old rookie forward Jared McCann would be sticking with the club beyond the nine-game mark rather than being returned to junior, triggering the first year of their entry-level contracts.
