|Sharp Has Hat Trick, Blackhawks Beat Ducks
|ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Patrick Sharp scored the tying and go-ahead goals in a 2:01 span early in the third period to complete his second career hat trick, and the Chicago Blackhawks rallied for a 6-5 victory over the floundering Anaheim Ducks on Friday.
Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews had two goals and three assists, helping Chicago end a three-game skid and send the demoralized Ducks to their sixth straight loss. Dave Bolland also scored, and Duncan Keith and Viktor Stalberg each had two assists.
Anaheim's Bobby Ryan, playing despite a bruised hip, scored twice to end an eight-game goal drought. Teemu Selanne had a power-play goal and an assist, and Andrew Cogliano and Corey Perry also scored. Jonas Hiller made 17 of his 28 saves in the second period before the Blackhawks drove him to the bench with a 5-4 deficit with 16:27 remaining.
