Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Brandon Saad each had a goal and an assist in the second period as the Chicago Blackhawks scored in quick succession to beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Wednesday night.

Marian Hossa also scored in the second period for Chicago and Saad added an empty netter late. Corey Crawford made 29 saves.

The Blackhawks scored four times on five shots in a span of 7:31 in the second to rally from two goals down and snap a four-game winless streak (0-2-2).

The victory was Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville's 693rd, moving him past Dick Irvin into sole possession of third place on the all-time NHL coaching wins list.

Chris Higgins and Tom Sestito scored for Vancouver, and Roberto Luongo stopped 36 shots.
