Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist as the Chicago Blackhawks pounded the Phoenix Coyotes, 6-2, on Thursday.
Jonathan Toews, Viktor Stalberg and Bryan Bickell each posted a goal and an assist while Patrick Sharp added three assists for the Blackhawks, who won a third straight game and have notched at least a point in all 11 games this season. Ray Emery made 22 stops in the win.
Martin Hanzal and Raffi Torres scored for the Coyotes, who had won their previous two coming into the game. Mike Smith was pulled in the second period after giving up all six goals on 22 shots. Jason LaBarbera turned away all 11 shots he faced.
This was the first time that Torres and Marian Hossa played in the same game since last spring when Torres launched himself into the air and drilled Hossa with a shoulder to the head in Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinals.
Phoenix wound up winning that series in six games, but Torres was handed a 25- game suspension that was later reduced to 21 games as he made his season debut on Feb. 4.
