Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Patrick Kane's third-period goal lifted the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-3 win over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.
Brent Seabrook, Adam Clendening and Daniel Carcillo also scored for Chicago and Corey Crawford had 24 saves.
The Blackhawks started a six-game road trip, making room as they do every year for the circus to take over United Center. They have won four of their last five.
The Flames had a three-game winning streak snapped in their third loss in the last 10 games. Paul Byron, Sean Monahan and Dennis Wideman scored and Jonas Hiller allowed four goals on 22 shots.
Calgary hasn't dropped two in a row since Oct. 25 and 28.
"We don't want to lose two in a row. We're in a position to respond," said Flames coach Bob Hartley. "We've been responding very well since the start (of the season)."
Kane scored 9:12 in the third period after Hiller misplayed the puck around the back of the net and it ended up in front of the winger on the low left side.
Kane also had an assist and finished with a team-high three shots.
"He was great tonight -- a lot of puck time, a lot of zone time, dangerous," said Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville. "And obviously he scored a big goal for us."
Chicago had a 2-0 lead 7:12 into the game on Clendening's one-timer from the point on a power play and Carcillo's snap shot from the left side after the teams traded turnovers.
Calgary tied it before the end of the period on power-play goals from Byron and Wideman within a span of 54 seconds.
Seabrook scored 10:52 into the second period for Chicago but Calgary tied it again on Monahan's goal at 12:33.
