|Blackhawks Beat Kings
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Marty Turco made 33 saves, and Viktor Stalberg scored the deciding goal to help the Chicago Blackhawks snap a two game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
Turco, signed to a one-year contract to replace Antti Niemi in the offseason, allowed only Justin Williams' first-period goal. The Kings outshot the Blackhawks 15-8 in the third period, pressuring Chicago until Patrick Sharp scored his NHL-leading ninth goal of the season with 2:05 remaining.
Jake Dowell also scored for Chicago.
Chicago improved to 6-4-1. Los Angeles dropped to 6-3-0 after winning five of its previous six.
