Turco bounces back for Hawks in 3-1 win vs. Wild

Marty Turco bounced back from a benching with 25 saves, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Saturday night.

Troy Brouwer had a goal and an assist, Duncan Keith scored early in the third period and Jake Dowell added an empty-netter for the Blackhawks, who enjoyed plenty of support from their fans despite being on the road.

Missing one of their top scorers in Marian Hossa while he recovers from an upper body injury, the Blackhawks were coming off a woeful home performance — a 7-4 loss on Friday to Edmonton from which Turco was pulled after allowing four goals on 12 shots in the first period.

Marek Zidlicky's third-period goal wasn't enough for the Wild, who got 29 saves from Niklas Backstrom.
