Blackhawks Vs. Ducks Recap: Hawks Hold Early Lead For Easy Victory

The Blackhawks led the Anaheim Ducks by as much as four goals on Friday night as they finally secured a stress-free victory in the month of December. The Blackhawks (20-8-4) were led by the duo of Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp, as well as back up goalie Ray Emery, who saved 24 of 25 shots en route to being named the game's first star.

Hossa and Sharp, who are now tied with Jonathan Towes for the team lead in points at 34, each tallied a goal and assist on Friday night. Hossa's goal, which was assisted by Sharp (his 17th), was his 14th of the year, and it gave the Hawks a 2-0 lead a minute into the second period. Sharp capped the scoring for Chicago midway through the third period with his 17th goal of the season, which came on Hossa's 20th assist of the season.

The Blackhawks will resume play on Sunday, when they will host the Calgary Flames.
