Blackhawks, IceHogs both lose Sunday games


Justin Faulk and Victor Rask scored, backup Eddie Lack stopped 35 shots and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 on Sunday night.

Chicago's Brent Seabrook spoiled Lack's shutout bid with 3 seconds left and Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford on the bench for an extra attacker. The Blackhawks lost 4-0 to Dallas in their previous game on Tuesday night. The Hawks' next game is Tuesday night in Arizona.

In AHL action, the Rockford IceHogs had their nine-game winning streak against the Iowa Wild snapped Sunday as the Wild took a 3-1 win over the Hogs. The regulation loss also snapped a six-game road point streak, dating back to a Dec. 2 win over the Texas Stars.

For the sixth straight game, the IceHogs surrendered the opening goal. Colton Beck led a three-on-one rush into the Rockford zone and made a quick pass to Mike Reilly on the right side. Reilly quickly fired a shot that squeezed between the arm and body of Mark Visentin to give the Wild a 1-0 lead at 7:35.

Mark McNeill answered back for the Hogs at 15:17 of the opening period. P.C. Labrie fired a shot towards the net and Tanner Kero snapped the rebound just over the crossbar. McNeill pulled the rebound off the end boards and snuck a shot inside the right point to even the score. The Wild scored the next two goals to pick up the victory.

Rockford returns to the BMO Harris Bank Center ice on Wednesday against Chicago. Puck drops at 7:00.
