Patrick Kane, because he’s Patrick Kane, excitedly talked about the Blackhawks’ game Friday against the Anaheim Ducks, using the word “revenge” after suffering two late losses in the previous meetings.

Jonathan Toews, because he’s Jonathan Toews, was a little more reserved about the last regular-season game against the only Western Conference team within sniffing distance of the Hawks.

“People want to point out that we haven’t won against this team yet, but I don’t think that’s a huge flaw or anything,” Toews said before the game. “Obviously, we want to prove ourselves. We played two good games, and it’s come down to the wire against the Ducks. So tonight, if the same situation comes up, obviously, we want to be on top.”

It did. They weren’t.

Sheldon Souray’s blast from the point shattered Niklas Hjalmarsson’s stick and deflected past Hawks goaltender Ray Emery with 2:08 to go to give the Ducks yet another late victory, 2-1. It was the Ducks’ third victory in as many tries against the Hawks, and it left Emery (22 saves) with his first loss of the season after an NHL-record 12-0-0 start.

“I tried to do as much as I could to block the shot,” said Hjalmarsson, who flung his broken stick into the boards in disgust after the goal. “Obviously, it went off my stick there and in the net. That’s the way the puck bounces sometimes. Sometimes you get the bounces with you, and sometimes you get it against. And this time, obviously, it was against.”
