Emery Makes 24 Saves in Blackhawks Win Over Flames
CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago backup Ray Emery made 24 saves, and Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Viktor Stalberg and Patrick Kane scored to lead the Blackhawks to a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Friday night.

Emery, who made his fourth start this season, lost a shutout bid with 9:10 left in the third when Olli Jokinen scored. Keith and Seabrook, Chicago's two top defensemen, both scored their first goals of the season in the Blackhawks' 17th game.

Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 27 shots and made several tough, close-in saves to keep the game close.

The Blackhawks (10-4-3) won their second straight, and the Flames (6-8-1) dropped their second in a row.
