"To get three before the start of May is unbelievable. But I have been playing well, getting myself into contention and making the most of the opportunities," he said. "At first I was thinking about trying to keep my playing card this year but now I feel I have the ability to go out and win every week and I have had that mindset for some time."

Patrick Sharp had a goal and two assists, and Chicago scored a season-high three times on the power play in a 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night. Marian Hossa, Brent Seabrook and Brandon Saad each had goal and an assist, and Michal Handzus and Andrew Shaw also scored. Patrick Kane had three assists for Chicago, which ended a three-game losing streak -- its longest regular-season skid since February 2012. Corey Crawford was forced out with 6:15 left in the first period after sustaining a lower-body injury. Rookie Antti Raanta, recalled after veteran backup Nikolai Khabublin was injured on Nov. 16, stopped 29 of 31 shots for the win in relief of Crawford, who made four saves. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville didnt offer a diagnosis of the injury to Crawford, who played every minute of the Blackhawks Stanley Cup playoff run last season. "I dont think its too serious, but when its a goalie, its a little more serious than with other players, because of how important he is to our team," Quenneville said. "Youre concerned, but I think well have a better assessment (Monday)." Crawford left with the Blackhawks ahead 2-0, moments after he went down to make a right pad save on Marcel Goc, who later scored one of Floridas goals. Former Blackhawks player Dylan Olsen had the Panthers other goal. Crawford was unable to get back up on his skates, and had to be helped from the ice by teammates and a trainer. Raanta was able to finish the game despite being elbowed in the head by Floridas Jimmy Hayes in a collision midway through the third period. "Usually if the goalie is down its something really bad," Raanta said. "But I just tried to get my mind in the game, get focused, and do the right things. "Thats the job I came here to do. If the coaches say Im going to the net, I am, and Ill be as good as possible." While Raanta held off the Panthers, the Blackhawks snipers and specialty teams made the difference. The Blackhawks went 3-for-4 on the power play and stopped all five Florida advantages. "It shows how importantt special teams can be," Sharp said. Bud Dupree Steelers Jersey. "Not only the power-play scoring, but our penalty kill had some big kills there. "It was good to break the losing streak, nice to rebound with a win. Were a little concerned to see how Coreys going to react to whatever happened early in the game. Well take the two points and evaluate Crow." Floridas Scott Clemmensen made 26 saves in his third start and fifth appearance this season. Olsen, a defenceman who was traded from Chicago to Florida on Nov. 14, connected in his first game against his former team. Although Florida managed to trim a 3-0 Chicago lead to 3-2 in the second period, it wasnt nearly enough. "We came charging back in the second and third period," Florida coach Peter Horachek said. "We had 15-17 shots in the third period and 10 scoring chances, but theyre not going in. "On (Chicagos) power play, its bing-bing and a shot and it goes in the first time, first shot. But thats what good teams do, and obviously theyre a good team. World-class players sharpshooting the puck." Sharp and Seabrook scored power-play goals in the first period to give Chicago a 2-0 lead. Sharp opened the scoring 1:10 in. His shot from the top of the slot sailed past Clemmensen. Seabrook made it 2-0 when he pinched to the right circle, took a cross-ice pass from Saad, and fired in a low shot. Raanta made a couple of close-in saves late in the first to preserve the lead. Hossa increased Chicagos advantage to 3-0 just 37 seconds into the second, popping in a rebound of Sharps shot. Olsen cut it to 3-1 at 4:05 when he closed in from the left point and beat Raanta with a high screened shot. Goc trimmed it to 3-2 with an unassisted goal after Raanta failed to clear the puck off the boards. Handzus goal with 2:34 left in the second made it 4-2. Shaws power-play goal at 2:44 of the third, extended Chicagos lead to three goals. Hayes knocked off Raantas mask at 8:39 of the third when he drove hard to the net. Saad completed the scoring on a breakaway with 56 seconds left. NOTES: Shaw returned after missing two games with an upper-body injury. ...
