BARCELONA, Spain -- Pedro Rodriguez scored three goals and Victor Valdes saved another penalty in Barcelonas 4-0 win at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, keeping the defending Spanish league champions perfect through five rounds. Adidas Zx Flux Baratas . Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. The Spain forward has five goals this season, making him the leagues second-leading scorer along with Atletico Madrids Diego Costa behind Messi with six. Cesc Fabregas capped the rout in the 80th with Rayo searching for a consolation goal. "We knew the difficulties Vallecas Stadium presents, its a tough ground to win at," Pedro said after his first career hat trick for Barcelona. "They have a competitive team, but we were able to find the spaces we needed to score." Atletico also got its fifth win in as many rounds to lie level on points with Barcelona after a no-nonsense 2-0 victory at Valladolid. Atleticos defence limited Valladolid to one shot on goal while midfielder Raul Garcia and forward Diego Costa both scored goals set up by Jorge "Koke" Resurreccion in the second half. Moments after goalkeeper Diego Marino saved his header, Garcia scored in the 56th with a no-look header from Kokes cross that Marino could only watch float over him and into the net. Koke then lobbed a delicate through ball down the middle of the pitch for Diego Costa to seal the result in the 72nd. "It was a question of waiting for our moment," said Atletico coach Diego Simeone. "Valladolid played well in the first half. It didnt generate scoring chances, but nor did it let us play like we wanted. But we talked about it at halftime and my players had a great response." Barcelona and Atletico opened up an overnight five-point advantage over Real Madrid before it hosts Getafe on Sunday. Atletico visits Madrid next round in their first meeting since Atletico beat Madrid in the Copa del Rey final last season. Encouraged by its raucous fans, Rayo set a brutal pace from the start, and Valdes was called into action in the third minute to turn back Alberto Pereas header. "Valdes is having an exceptional run," said Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino. "Hes among the three best goalkeepers in Spain. Its my turn to enjoy having him as my player, even though you dont always want to see your goalkeeper having to make three or four decisive saves." Barcelona matched Rayos intense pressure and a ball stolen by Alex Song led to Barcelonas opener. Messi took the ball, drew in the hosts defence, and laid off for Pedro arriving down the right side to drive a low shot into the net. It was then Valdes turn to shine again this season, his last with the Catalan club which he seems determined to make his best. Rayo was poised to level in the 35th when Barcelona defender Adriano fouled midfielder Roberto Trashorras in the area, but Valdes stood firm and had little trouble parrying Trashorras spot kick. "In the first half our team was able to cause Barcelona problems," said Trashorras. "If I had scored that penalty, they would have had even more trouble. Having studied him I thought that Valdes was going to dive to one side, and I tried to shoot down the middle since he had gone to one side the other day. But he did well to wait." Pedro scored his second goal when he raced in to stab Fabregas cross home after the former Arsenal midfielder forced Rayo into losing the ball deep in its own half. As Rayos players tired while its fans continued to urge them forward, Neymar started and extended a flowing move by squaring for Pedro to tap in his third goal before Fabregas took the fourth. Also, Real Sociedads scoring drought reached three games when Malaga held the Basque club to 0-0 at home, while Levante rallied to 2-2 at 10-man Almeria. Sociedad, which lost its Champions League group opener on Tuesday, increased its winless run in the domestic competition to four rounds. Despite selling several players this summer, first-year coach Bernd Schuster has Malaga on a three-game unbeaten streak. The promoted Almeria remained winless through five rounds after squandering a second-half lead for the fourth time this season. Also on Sunday, its: Real Betis vs. Granada, Celta Vigo vs. Villarreal, and Valencia vs. Sevilla. Espanyol hosts Athletic Bilbao on Monday.

Marian Hossa scored two goals and Chicago defeated Dallas 5-2. Patrick Sharp assisted on the Blackhawks first four goals. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane also scored before Niklas Hjalmarsson finished the scoring with a short-handed empty-net goal. The Stars failed to score on any of their six power plays. Chicagos penalty-killing unit was ranked last in the NHL, but it was good enough to stop all of Dallas power-play chances. The Stars are 0 for 24 power plays at home this season. Hossa said the Blackhawks penalty killing is "definitely getting better and better, and were getting on the same page." "Technically, we didnt get a power-play goal," Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said, "but (the Stars first goal) came at the end of one and it was still 5-on-4. "We had some good opportunities we didnt convert. We got some good looks that could have been a game-changer right there." In contrast, Kanes goal was just 23 seconds into Chicagos only power play of the game, 18:15 into the second period. It was the Blackhawks only shot with a man advantage. "It was frustrating with all of the penalties early," Sharp said. "We were patient and we capitalized on the power play. We knew it was going to come sooner than later." The Blackhawks used two short passes across the ice, from Sharp and Andrew Shaw to Kane, to set up that go-ahead goal at 18:15 of the second period. Dallas Cody Eakin had lost the puck on a one-man rush into the Chicago end. The Stars were late getting back before Kanes shot from the right circle beat Kari Lehtonen. "The changing point was on a turnover by myself," Eakin said. "We have to be a little sharper. I thought we played a good game, but we had a few too many turnovers." Ruff said: "They took advantage of a big mistake. We had a really big error on killing a penalty and should have walked out of the second period probably at 2-2. "In the end, we gave the game away, and that hurts." The Blackhawks took advantage. "Basically, it was one of those nights where special teams was the differential," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "Our penalty kill led the charge. It was a great goal for the power play. I thought overall we played a real strong game discounting thee penalties we took. Adidas Originals Dragon Zapatos. " Before that, the Blackhawks twice rallied from one-goal deficits. Hossa evened the score 1-1 in the first period with an assist from Toews across the goalmouth, after Eakin had scored for Dallas. Hossa said: "As soon as (Toews) got in position, I tried to find open space for putting the puck in the net, and he found me beautifully. He did an excellent job behind the goal." Eakin scored at the end of what was virtually a 4-minute power play because of consecutive minor penalties against Chicago. Hjalmarsson had barely returned to the ice from serving a tripping penalty when Trevor Daley took a backhand shot. Chicago goalie Corey Crawford tried to control the rebound, but Dallas Shawn Horcoff and Eakin poked at the puck and it crossed the goal line. Crawford finished with 31 saves. Eakin scored at 6:10, 2 seconds after Hjalmarssons penalty had expired. He had gone into the penalty box just 1 second after teammate Brandon Saads high sticking penalty ended. Chicagos late first-period rally pulled the Blackhawks within one shot on goal of the Stars at 11-10. In the second period, Dallas continued to put pressure on Crawford. It paid off at 6:54. Tyler Seguin took a pass from Jamie Benn and fired in a shot from an angle low in the right faceoff circle. The Blackhawks continued to frustrate the Stars power play, killing off two more in the period. Chicago tied the score 2-2 at 10:19. Lehtonen stopped a short-range shot by Toews, but Toews manoeuvred around defenceman Brenden Dillon to knock in his own rebound. Lehtonen finished with 26 saves. Sharp credited his teammates for his four assists. "One of those nights where you try to make the right play, and my linemates were putting the puck in the net." Dallas goalie stopped a breakaway by Kane 23 seconds before the period ended. The final two goals came 34 seconds apart in the third period. Hossa scored on a breakaway, and Hjalmarsson followed with a shot the length of the ice for his empty-net goal at 18:53. Notes: The Stars finished with a 33-31 advantage in shots. .
