CHICAGO, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Marty Turco allowed only a first-period goal Wednesday and made 33 saves in leading Chicago to a 3-1 victory over Los Angeles.
The Blackhawks produced a goal in each period to end a two-game skid. Los Angeles had won its previous two games.
Jake Dowell opened the scoring for Chicago 5:16 into the game and Justin Williams delivered the only goal against Turco midway through the first.
Viktor Stalberg gave the Blackhawks the lead for good 1:18 into the second by firing a slap shot past Jonathan Bernier and Patrick Sharp clinched it with 2:05 to play in regulation by scoring his ninth goal of the campaign.
Bernier, appearing in goal for the third time this season and for only the 10th time in his three-year career, stopped 25-of-28 shots.
Los Angeles was unable to put one by Turco in the final period despite taking 15 shots. The Kings played their fourth straight road game and will wrap up their early-season trip in Dallas Thursday.
