Sharp sparks Blackhawks to win over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Patrick Sharp finally scored, Nick Leddy jump-started Chicago's stagnant special teams with a power-play goal and the Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 5-1 on Monday night.

Corey Crawford made 29 saves, and Sheldon Brookbank, Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad all scored to give the Blackhawks just their third game of more than three goals in 12 contests this season.

After giving up 11 goals while losing their previous two games, the Blackhawks played tougher defense, were more disciplined and paid the Wild back for their 5-3 win Saturday in Chicago.

Jason Pominville had a goal for the Wild, his third in two games to tie it at 1 midway through the second period, but Niklas Backstrom never found his footing in the net.
