Nov. 27, 2011 at 1:17 AM

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Jonathan Toews netted the game-winning goal and Duncan Keith added two assists Saturday in the Chicago Blackhawks' 2-1 victory over Los Angeles.

Toews broke a 1-1 tie with 3:22 remaining in the second period when a Viktor Stalberg shot bounced off the backboards directly to where he was standing alone at the side of the goal.

The Blackhawks captain quickly fired it home into an empty net for his team-best 13th goal and Western Conference-leading Chicago hung on to finish a six-game road trip with a 3-3-0 mark.

Andrew Brunette also scored and Corey Crawford turned aside 26-of-27 shots to earn the victory.

Jarrett Stoll tallied an unassisted goal for the Kings' only score and Jonathan Quick made 25 saves for Los Angeles.
