Toews Lifts Blackhawks in Shootout
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jonathan Toews scored the lone shootout goal to give the Chicago Blackhawks their third straight victory, 5-4 over the Atlanta Thrashers on Saturday night.

Chicago's Dave Bolland scored early in the third period to tie it at 4 and set up overtime after Atlanta erased a 3-1 deficit in the second and held a 4-3 lead after 40 minutes.

Patrick Sharp, Kim Johnsson and Marian Hossa also connected for the Blackhawks, and Sharp had two assists.

Hossa scored his NHL-leading fifth short-handed goal, and Johnsson, a defenseman, connected in his in his first game with the Blackhawks. He was acquired Friday along with Nick Leddy in a deal that sent Cam Barker to Minnesota.
