The NHL roundup …

Blackhawks 5, Lightning 3
TAMPA, Fla. ó Jonathan Toews scored twice, Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists, and Chicago Blackhawks withstood the first career hat trick by Steven Stamkos.

Sabres 4, Maple Leafs 1
TORONTO ó Drew Stafford scored twice and Buffalo moved into a tie for fifth in the Eastern Conference.
