Marian Hossa snapped a tie with 7:54 remaining in the second period and added an empty-netter in the final minute as the host Chicago Blackhawks ended their three-game losing streak with a 5-4 victory over the skidding Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Blackhawks notched their seventh consecutive win over Toronto and sent the Maple Leafs to their sixth straight defeat.

All-Star Patrick Kane notched a goal and an assist, Andrew Shaw and Marcus Kruger also scored and Ray Emery stopped 23 of 24 shots in relief for the Blackhawks, who have won eight of 10 at home.

Trailing 3-1, Chicago began its comeback late in the second period as Nick Leddy's blast from the right point deflected off Kruger and past Jonas Gustavsson with 30 seconds remaining.

Kane knotted the contest 8 1/2 minutes into the third when his backhander from the right side of the net caromed off Gustavsson and in. Hossa gave the Blackhawks the lead 3 1/2 minutes later, burying a wrist shot from the slot while being interfered with by Mikhail Grabovski.

Hossa scored an empty-net goal with 16 seconds remaining that proved important as Toronto's Mike Brown tallied for the first time since Oct. 27 with two seconds left.

Joffrey Lupul registered a goal and an assist while Tyler Bozak and Clarke MacArthur also scored for the Maple Leafs, who have lost 10 of 11.
