Patrick Kane scores 2 goals as Blackhawks beat Avalanche 5-2 @NHLdotcom

DENVER - Patrick Kane scored twice and Corey Crawford stopped 23 shots, leading the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks to a 5-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.

Brandon Saad and Brent Seabrook also scored for the Blackhawks, while Patrick Sharp celebrated his 33rd birthday with a game-sealing goal in the third period. Kane added an empty-net goal with 5.4 seconds remaining.

Nathan MacKinnon and Erik Johnson had goals for the Avalanche as their three-game win streak was snapped.

This is the second time Chicago has beaten Colorado at Pepsi Center this year after going 0-2 in the building last season.

Crawford wasn't challenged all that often in the third period, but came up big with the Avalanche on a 5-on-3 power play. He stopped a point-blank shot with his shoulder to help the Blackhawks successfully dodge both penalties.
