Mr. Serious leads way
The Chicago Blackhawks matched a franchise record with their 11th straight victory, using two goals from captain Jonathan Toews to beat the slumping Montreal Canadiens 5-2 on Sunday night. Marian Hossa had an empty-net goal and two assists for Chicago, and Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist. Richard Panik scored his first goal of the season, and Montreal native Corey Crawford made 27 saves. Lars Eller and Max Pacioretty scored for Montreal. Montreal (2319-4) has lost four in a row and five of six. The Canadiens also dropped to 6-15-2 since star goaltender Carey Price was shelved by a lower-body injury in November.
