|CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Kris Versteeg scored two power-play goals in Chicago's five-goal second period to help the Blackhawks rout the Calgary Flames 7-1 Thursday night in a rematch of a first-round playoff series.
The Blackhawks beat the Flames in six games last season in the playoffs, ending the series with a 4-1 victory in Calgary. On October 12 in Chicago in their first meeting of the season, the Blackhawks overcame a 5-0 deficit to beat the Flames 6-5 in overtime.
Troy Brouwer and Patrick Kane added power-play goals for the Blackhawks, 4 for 5 with the man advantage, and Dustin Byfuglien, Andrew Ladd and Ben Eager also scored.
Cristobal Huet made 27 saves, allowing only Olli Jokinen's power-play goal.
