    Marian Hossa scored a goal and added an assist and goal-tender Corey Crawford made 29 saves as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Anaheim Ducks 2-0.

    Chicago (35-10-14) earned at least a point in the first four games of a five game road trip prior to the Olympic break. They moved four points ahead of the St Louis Blues for the Central Division lead, although the Blues have four games in hand.

    Elsewhere, centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin scored highlight-reel goals to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 5-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

    Right winger Tommy Wingels scored at 1:52 of overtime to give the San Jose Sharks a hard-earned 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars.

    Dallas (26-21-10) tied the game on its 17th shot when right winger Valeri Nichushkin one-timed a centering feed by defenseman Trevor Daley past Sharks goalie Alex Stalock at 6:27 of the third period to cap a chance-filled Stars' shift.
