CHICAGO — Sheldon Souray scored with 2:08 remaining in regulation to snap a tie, Jonas Hiller made 25 saves and the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 Friday to end a four-game NHL losing streak.

Souray's drive through a screen from the left point hit the stick of Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson and deflected past Ray Emery, who suffered his first loss of the season (12-1-0).

Anaheim's Corey Perry scored at 1:15 of the second period in the meeting of the top two teams in the Western Conference, played before a season-high crowd of 22,105 at the United Center.

Anaheim (23-7-4) improved to 50 points, three behind conference-leading Chicago (25-5-3).

Chicago's Patrick Kane scored a power-play goal at 2:26 of the third period to extend his points streak to eight games.

Kane has six goals and nine assists during the span.

Anaheim swept its season series from Chicago, winning three games.
