Recap


Blackhawks 3, Flames 2: Patrick Kane backhanded the puck just inside the right post with 18 seconds remaining in the third period for his second goal of the game as visiting Chicago rallied for its fourth straight victory.

Kane, who extended his point streak to 12 games, and Patrick Sharp scored midway through the third period to erase a 2-0 deficit. Defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson had a pair of assists and Antti Raanta turned aside 20 shots in his first NHL start for the Blackhawks.

Matt Stajan and rookie Sean Monahan tallied for the Flames, who were 2-0-1 in their previous three contests. Jiri Hudler added two assists and Reto Berra made 27 saves for Calgary.

Berra, who stopped 42 shots to beat Chicago in his NHL debut on Nov. 2, and Raanta both made 10 saves in a scoreless first period. The Flames limited the Blackhawks to five shots in the second session and took the lead when Stajan buried a one-timer from the slot off a pass from Hudler at 13:32.

Monahan doubled the lead 2:05 into the third, converting a feed by Hudler from the slot. Kane got the Blackhawks on the board, beating Berra from the bottom of the left faceoff circle with 10:18 left, and Sharp tied it 56 seconds later.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Flames blocked 29 shots, getting at least one from 12 different players - including a game-high five from Ds Kris Russell and Ladislav Smid. … Chicago RW Marian Hossa returned to the lineup after missing two games due to a personal matter and assisted on Sharp’s goal. … Flames D Shane O’Brien was a healthy scratch as D Derek Smith was inserted into the lineup for the eighth time this season.
