|Kane Leads Blackhawks Past Coyotes
|GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist in a dominant first period, Antti Raanta made 32 saves for his second NHL win, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Phoenix Coyotes 5-2 on Saturday night to complete an impressive road trip.
After watching a 3-0 lead become 3-2 after a sloppy second period, Brandon Bollig's goal with 9:11 left put it away for Chicago. Andrew Shaw and Niklas Hjalmarsson also scored for the Blackhawks, and Marian Hossa added an empty-net goal in Chicago's sixth straight win to wrap up a seven-game, 13-day trip that saw them cement their status as one of the NHL's top teams.
Rob Klinkhammer and Martin Hanzal scored for the Coyotes, who lost for the fourth time in five games.
