CHICAGO (AP) - Defensemen Trevor van Riemsdyk, Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson scored in the first period, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the San Jose Sharks 5-2 on Sunday night.

Bryan Bickell added a big goal in the third as the Blackhawks stopped a three-game home losing streak. Corey Crawford made 32 saves, including a nice stop on Patrick Marleau with Chicago nursing a one-goal lead with 7:30 left.

Joe Pavelski had two goals for San Jose, which was coming off a 5-3 victory at Dallas on Saturday night.

Trailing 3-2, the Sharks had a chance to tie the game when David Rundblad was sent off for holding at 9:06 of the third. But the Blackhawks killed off the penalty, and Bickell put it away with his second goal of the season at 16:18.

Jonathan Toews added an empty-netter with 1:57 left.

Antti Niemi finished with 32 stops for San Jose.
