ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane keyed a four-goal second period with a goal and assist apiece and goalie Corey Crawford was strong for the second straight day as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the St. Louis Blues 5-3 on Monday.

Andy McDonald scored his third goal in two games for the Blues, who couldn’t hold a two-goal first-period lead to end a three-game winning streak. Ben Bishop made his fourth career start and first since Dec. 18, 2008, but was yanked after surrendering four goals on eight shots in the second period.

Crawford made 31 saves a day after thwarting Pittsburgh in a shootout.

Marian Hossa added an empty-goal with less than a second to go for the Blackhawks. Chicago is 3-1 without ailing coach Joel Quenneville, recovering from gastrointestinal bleeding caused by an ulcer.
