CHICAGO (CBS/AP) — Jonathan Toews and Viktor Stalberg each had a goal and an assist, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat San Jose 4-3 on Sunday night and ended the Sharks’ eight-game point streak.

Dave Bolland and rookie Andrew Shaw also scored for Chicago, which has won three of four and is 3-0-2 in its last five. Shaw’s goal was his fourth in seven games since being recalled from the AHL.

Joe Pavelski, Jamie McGinn and rookie Tommy Wingels scored for the Sharks, who lost in regulation for the first time since Dec. 26. San Jose had won six of seven, and was 6-0-2 in its previous eight.

Chicago’s Corey Crawford made 21 saves.

Antti Niemi stopped 36 shots for the Sharks. Niemi, who backstopped the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup title in 2010, has started all seven games between these teams since joining the Sharks last season.
