Kings dethroned; Leafs back on track

Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each recorded a goal and an assist as the Chicago Blackhawks brought an end to Los Angeles Kings' seven-game winning streak with a 4-2 win at United Center.

Toews opened the scoring 06:01 into the contest, but Alec Martinez's first goal of the season and a strike from Anze Kopitar sent the Kings into the first intermission 2-1 to the good.

And after a goalless second period, Kane, Teuvo Teravainen and Artem Anisimov scored to give the defending Stanley Cup champions victory.

Joffrey Lupul recorded a three-point night with two goals and an assist to pace the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars to pick up their first home win of the season.

Brad Boyes gave Toronto the lead early in the first period, but the advantage lasted less than a minute as Jamie Benn scored his league-leading 10th goal of the season to tie things up.

Lupul then scored a pair of second-period goals to put the Maple Leaf on top before defenceman Morgan Reilly's third goal of the season with 13 seconds remaining wrapped things up.

Toronto goaltender James Reimer stopped 43 of 44 shots to be named first star.

Jannik Hansen, Bo Horvat, Jake Virtanen and Matt Bartkowski scored goals to earn the Vancouver Canucks a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
