Coyotes Get Past Blackhawks
CHICAGO (AP) -- Kyle Turris and Eric Belanger scored 35 seconds apart in the second period and backup Jason LaBarbera made 35 saves in the Phoenix Coyotes' 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

Phoenix improved to 5-5-5, and the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks dropped to 8-9-1 with their fourth loss in five games. Chicago also blew a lead at home for the sixth time this season.

LaBarbera, winless this season in three appearances entering the game, won for the fourth time in four career games against Chicago. He faced 26 shots in the first two periods, but only 10 in the third.

Brian Bickell scored for Chicago.
