|Blackhawks use 3rd-Period Spurt to Beat Stars 5-2
|CHICAGO (AP)--Chicago's Andrew Shaw, Niklas Hjalmarsson and Marian Hossa scored in the third period after Dallas rallied to tie it, and the Blackhawks went on to beat the Stars 5-2 on Monday night for their sixth straight win.
Jonathan Toews netted his team-leading 21st goal, and Viktor Stalberg also scored for NHL-leading Chicago, which has points in nine consecutive games (8-0-1). Ray Emery made 16 saves and improved to 16-1.
Jamie Benn scored both goals for the Stars, whose five-game winning streak ended. They got even after falling behind 2-0. Richard Bachman made 23 saves in his third straight start in place of No. 1 goalie Kari Lehtonen, who is out because of a lower body injury.
Bachman has been in goal since relieving Lehtonen in the first period of the Stars' 5-1 win over Los Angeles on Tuesday.
