CHICAGO -- After their No. 1 goalie was knocked out early in the game, the Chicago Blackhawks dialed up their NHL-leading offence. 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 important special teams can be," Sharp said. "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. ...

Too few girl players accepted the condition for the team to field a tournament squad, he said.Mendocino varsity teams first wore the I Cant Breathe T-shirts before a game with Fort Bragg on Dec. 16, according to the girls coach, Caedyn Feehan. The girls also wore them before games at two other tournaments and didnt receive any blowback, Feehan said.I didnt even know what it meant. I thought it was a joke about how I had conditioned them so hard, Feehan said. None of the administrators knew what it was or that any of them were doing it in advance. This was entirely for their cause that they had strong feelings about.Professional basketball players such as LeBron James, Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving wore I Cant Breathe shirts during warmups this month without repercussions from the NBA. After Kobe Bryant and other Los Angeles Lakers players wore them before a game and on the bench on Dec. 9, coach Byron Scott said he viewed it as a matter of freedom of choice and freedom of speech.Thats how Marc Woods, whose 16-year-old son Connor plans to sit out the tournament, sees it. Connor wore the T-shirt at the Dec. 16 game in the name of team solidarity, but the shirt has now taken a constitutional angle, the father said.ddddddddddddMarc Woods said he brought the issue to the American Civil Liberties Union, and hopes to hear back after the holidays. He referred to a 1969 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Tinker v. Des Moines, which found high school students wearing black armbands to protest the Vietnam War were protected by the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment.This is completely a First Amendment issue, Marc Woods said. Thats why Im offended.Bruce Triplett, the athletic director at Fort Bragg High, did not return a call and email seeking comment. Principal Rebecca Walker issued a written statement Friday saying school administrators respected the Mendocino teams for paying attention to what is going on in the world around them and that the T-shirts were being prohibited as a security precaution.To protect the safety and well-being of all tournament participants it is necessary to ensure that all political statements and or protests are kept away from this tournament, wrote Walker, who said she was speaking on behalf of the athletic director and the Fort Bragg school superintendent. We are a small school district that simply does not have the resources to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff, students and guests at the tournament should someone get upset and choose to act out.Marc Woods, whose father was a California Highway Patrol officer, said he is outraged by what he sees as using intimidation to silence players and fans. Fort Bragg administrators have warned spectators who plan to protest the T-shirt ban that they will be asked to leave, he said.It doesnt take a lot to suppress the exchange of ideas when you put fear into it, Marc Woods said.Both schools are located in Mendocino County, known for redwood forests, rugged coastline and marijuana-growing, located 120 miles north of San Francisco. The student bodies at the two schools are 1 per cent black and 50 per cent white and 41 per cent Hispanic at Fort Bragg, 75 per cent white and 9 per cent Hispanic at Mendocino._____Associated Press Fresno Correspondent Scott Smith contributed to this report.
