Blackhawks 5, Blues 2

Associated Press  |  Last updated December 03, 2011
Marian Hossa scored twice and the Chicago Blackhawks solved streaking St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott in a 5-2 victory Saturday night. Hossa scored on a power play and short-handed for his first multigoal game of the season. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Michael Frolik also scored to help Chicago win for the fourth time in five games. The Blackhawks were coming off a 5-4 shootout victory over the New York Islanders on Friday night in Chicago. David Perron, returning after missing 97 games because of a concussion, and Chris Stewart scored for St. Louis. The Blues lost for the second time in two nights. Elliott fell to 10-2 and had a six-game winning streak snapped. He hadn't allowed more than two goals in his 11 starts, had stopped 239 of his previous 249 shots and came into the game leading the NHL in goals- against average (1.31) and save percentage (.951). Chicago goalie Ray Emery outplayed Elliott, making 23 saves. Emery improved to 4-1-1 with his third career win over St. Louis in three starts. The Blackhawks scored three straight goals to erase a 2-1 deficit. Sharp broke a 2-2 tie with a power-play goal late in the second period. He has 13 goals, including eight in the last nine games. Hossa, who has 11 goals, tied it at 2 with the Blackhawks' fourth short-handed goal of the season. He added a power-play goal 1:17 into the final period. Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith had two assists each, and Frolik scored an empty-net goal. Perron scored 6:51 into the game on his third shift. He was sidelined by concussion-like symptoms after a high hit by San Jose's Joe Thornton on Nov. 4, 2010. St. Louis fell to 8-2-3 under coach Ken Hitchcock. NOTES: The game was the second of six meetings between the teams this season. ... St. Louis has at least one point in 11 of its last 13 games. ... The Blues beat Chicago 3-0 on Nov. 8 in Hitchcock's first game in St. Louis. The Blues have 19 of a possible 26 points under Hitchcock. ... Chicago improved to 8-6-1 on the road.
