Ladd, Darling lead Blackhawks past Flames
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Andrew Ladd had two goals and an assist and Scott Darling made 31 saves to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.
Ladd’s first multipoint game with Chicago gives him eight points in 12 games since the Blackhawks acquired the left-winger from Winnipeg just prior to the trade deadline.
Andrew Shaw and Teuvo Teravainen also scored for Chicago, which kicked off an important four-game trip. Mired in a 1-4-2 skid entering the game, the Blackhawks remain two points up on the hard-charging Nashville Predators for third in the Central Division.
Dougie Hamilton scored his career-high 11th goal for Calgary.
