Patrick Sharp scored twice, extending his domination of the Dallas Stars, and the Chicago Blackhawks cruised to a 6-2 victory Tuesday night.

Brandon Saad also scored two goals for Chicago, which has won three of the four games between the teams. One victory was in a shootout.

Sharp has four goals and four assists against the Stars this season. In his last eight games versus Dallas, he has eight goals and seven assists.

Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists for the Blackhawks. Defenseman Michael Kostka returned after missing 24 games because of a foot injury to score Chicago's first goal.
