ST. LOUIS, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Marian Hossa scored twice during a stretch of four straight Chicago goals Saturday that carried the Blackhawks to a 5-2 in over St. Louis.

The Blackhawks spotted St. Louis a 2-1 lead, but Hossa's score-tying, shorthanded tally with 7:49 remaining the second period ignited a scoring binge that allowed Chicago to win going away.

Patrick Sharp scored on a power play with 5 minutes left in the middle frame, handing Chicago its first lead, and Hossa made it 4-2 early in the third on another power play.

Michael Frolik added an empty-netter and Jonathan Toews notched his 15th of the year for the Blackhawks.

Ray Emery stopped 23-of-25 shots to earn the victory.

David Perron returned from a 13-month absence with a concussion and scored in the first period for the Blues, who fell to 8-2-3 in the their last 13 games.

Chris Stewart also scored and Brian Elliot made 31 saves for St. Louis.
