Blackhawks Use Big 2nd Period to Beat Islanders
CHICAGO (AP) -- Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane scored in Chicago's four-goal second period, leading the Blackhawks to a 5-0 victory over the road-weary New York Islanders on Sunday night.

Hossa also had two assists and Patrick Sharp, Niklas Hjalmarsson and Kane each finished with a goal and an assist as Chicago had its biggest offensive output since a 7-5 loss at Colorado on Dec. 13. Corey Crawford made 29 saves in his first shutout since March 5, 2008, against Anaheim.

The Blackhawks snapped a six-game losing streak against New York with their first victory over the Islanders since a 3-2 road win on Dec. 10, 2002.

New York completed its longest road trip of the season _ an 11-day itinerary that also included stops in Detroit, Calgary, Edmonton and Colorado _ with a 3-2-0 record.
