NHL.com @NHL

CHICAGO - Brandon Saad scored with 7:03 left in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Sunday night for their 12th victory in the last 14 games.

After motoring past Calgary defenceman Mark Giordano, Saad took a centring pass from Jonathan Toews and lifted a shot past Jonas Hiller's glove.

Toews also set up Patrick Sharp's power-play goal as the surging Blackhawks dealt the Flames their fifth straight loss. Chicago had won eight in a row before Saturday night's 3-2 loss at the New York Islanders.

Jiri Hudler had his team-leading 12th goal for Calgary, which has scored just eight times during its slide.
