Highlights: Blackhawks cool off the Ducks with 4-2 triumph

By Chris Kuc

The Blackhawks aren’t quite ready to hand over the mantle of best team in the Western Conference to the Ducks.

Anaheim hit town as the hottest team in hockey and left it with just its second loss in the last 20 games as the Hawks reverted to championship form and handed the Ducks a 4-2 defeat Friday night at the United Center.

“This was great example of how we want to play,” said Marian Hossa, who had two goals. “We did a lot of great things, especially in our zone. The first half of the game we didn’t give them much (and) that’s the way we have to play. Play good defense and we know we’re going to score goals.”

Kris Versteeg and Bryan Bickell also scored for the Hawks and except for a short span late in the third period they got quality goaltending from Corey Crawford to win for the third time in their last seven games.
