BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Jonathan Toews scored the go-ahead goal 1:34 into the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks snapped a two-game road skid with a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night.

Patrick Kane celebrated his trip home to Buffalo by also scoring in helping the Blackhawks beat the Sabres for a fifth consecutive time. Cory Crawford made 20 saves in making his 12 straight start.

By improving to 3-3 since the end of the Olympic break, Chicago (38-13-14) avoided its longest road losing streak since a six-game drought from Feb. 2-14, 2012.

Drew Stafford scored for the league-worst Sabres (19-37-8), who had a three-game home winning streak snapped.
