Kane, Toews Lead Blackhawks Past Blues 7-5
CHICAGO (AP) -- Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each scored his second goal of the game late in the third period Tuesday night to shut off a St. Louis Blues rally and send the Chicago Blackhawks to a 7-5 victory.

Kane scored on a rebound off a shot by Viktor Stalberg with 6:18 left to put the Blackhawks up 6-4 after they nearly let a 5-1 lead slip away in their first home game since going 4-2 on a road swing out West.

Toews then added his second power-play goal of the night about 2 minutes later to give Chicago a three-goal cushion on its way to a third straight win.

David Backes scored for St. Louis with 2:39 left, but the Blues couldn't come all the way back and lost their third consecutive game.
