Chicago hadn't scored a power-play goal since Jan. 24, but Kane slipped a long shot through traffic and just inside Hiller's post midway through the first period. The goal appeared to awaken the Ducks, and Cogliano scored with 20 seconds left in the period when he got the puck alone in front of Emery.
The referees immediately waved off the goal because Cogliano clearly kicked the puck toward the net with his right skate, but a lengthy video review at the league offices in Toronto revealed Cogliano poked the puck through Emery's legs with his stick after Emery stopped the kick with his pads.
Emery backstopped the Ducks to a playoff berth last season, filling in for Hiller after the All-Star break when the Swiss goalie went down with an apparent case of vertigo.
Anaheim thoroughly controlled the second period, but wasn't rewarded until Selanne passed from behind the Chicago net to Brookbank, who fired it off Duncan Keith and past Emery. The goal was Brookbank's second in five games after playing the 167 straight games without a goal.
NOTES: The Blackhawks have never swept Anaheim in a season series. ... Longtime Montreal captain Saku Koivu played his 200th game with the Ducks. ... Cogliano's score snapped a 12-game goal drought since his hat trick Jan. 31 at Phoenix. ... The biggest regular-season crowd in Honda Center history welcomed the Ducks back from the road, with 17,601 tickets sold in a standing-room-only crowd.
