Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane and goalie Corey Crawford celebrate the 4-1 victory against the Anaheim Ducks following the third period at Honda Center on Friday.
Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist, and Patrick Sharp assisted on every Chicago goal in the Blackhawks’ 4-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.
Captain Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith also scored for the Blackhawks, who beat the NHL-leading Ducks for the third straight time at Honda Center. Corey Crawford made 21 saves as Chicago controlled the meeting of Western Conference powers, taking a three-goal lead in the second period.
Rickard Rakell scored with 9:54 to play and Frederik Andersen stopped 29 shots for the Ducks, who have back-to-back losses in two days after a six-game winning streak.
Shortly before Kane scored his first goal, Keith scored on what appeared to be goaltender interference by Toews during a dominant middle period by Chicago.
After getting blown out in San Jose on Thursday night, the Ducks have lost consecutive games for the second time all season, and the first since Nov. 28-29 - another back-to-back set against the Blackhawks and the Sharks.
And when the Ducks lose, they really lose: Anaheim has lost in regulation just nine times since Halloween, but eight of the nine were by at least three goals apiece.
