Chicago had little trouble with Calgary on Sunday.

The Chicago Blackhawks capped off a successful weekend on Sunday by defeating the Calgary Flames 4-2. It was Chicago's fifth consecutive win and the 600th career victory for coach Joel Quenneville. Chicago now is second in the Western Conference with 44 points and tied for first with 20 wins on the year.

Steve Montador opened this scoring with a goal midway through the first period, and the team would eventually open up a 3-0 lead on second period goals by Niklas Hjalmarsson and Patrick Kane. The Flames finally got on the board with a power play goal by Olli Jokinen in a penalty-filled third period. Marian Hossa scored a power play goal of his own about nine minutes later, which pushed the lead back to three and essentially put the game out of reach.

Chicago returns to the ice on Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
