Ray Emery made 16 saves for his first shutout in more than three years, defensemen Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook scored, and the Chicago Blackhawks snapped a two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.
Emery improved to 12-0 in recording his 12th career shutout, and first since Feb. 1, 2010, when he blanked the Flames while with Philadelphia.
Emery was tested several times, but the Blackhawks outshot the Flames 35-16 in sending them to their 10th straight road loss (0-9-1).
Calgary hasn't won in the United Center in five years, going 0-8-1 in Chicago since beating the Blackhawks 4-2 on March 16, 2008.
Leddy and Seabrook's goals both deflected off Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff, who stopped 33 shots. Patrick Kane assisted on both scores.
With the win, Chicago improved to 25-4-3 and remained in first place overall in the NHL with 53 points.
