CHICAGO (AP) - The swirling snow and frigid conditions made it even more fun for Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks.

Toews had two goals and an assist at a picturesque Soldier Field, and the Blackhawks beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1 on Saturday night in the finale of the NHL Stadium Series.

Patrick Sharp scored in the first period and Patrick Kane set up Kris Versteeg's 100th career goal in the second, helping Chicago to its first win since Feb. 5 at Anaheim. The reigning Stanley Cup champions dropped their final game before the Olympic break, and then lost 2-1 at the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

James Neal was credited with Pittsburgh's only goal when Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook sent the puck into his own net at 6:21 of the third. Marc-Andre Fleury had 35 saves in the Penguins' third straight loss, matching a season high.
