That changed against the Canadiens (8-4-1), who are winless in three games and 1-3-1 in their last five. Montreal absorbed a second straight lopsided defeat at home, following a 6-2 loss to Calgary on Sunday. Jonathan Toews, netted his 200th NHL goal, and Brad Richards and Patrick Kane also scored for Chicago (7-5-1), which came off a 1-0 home loss to Winnipeg on Sunday despite holding a 33-27 edge in shots. In the Blackhawks previous game, they outshot Toronto 47-27 and lost 3-2. Chicago beat goalie Carey Price with five of its 32 shots. Its a good feeling in here right now, Keith said. We know weve been struggling to score goals lately, and I thought we did a good job of playing all five guys together on the ice and working as a team. We had guys going to the net and we kept it simple – throw it at the net. The win might have come at a cost for Chicago as forward Patrick Sharp was helped off the ice six minutes into the third period after a solid, but legal hit into the boards by Alexei Emelin. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Sharp sustained a lower-body injury and would be evaluated in the next couple of days. He called it a tough break and said Sharp will be out for a bit, but didnt elaborate. We have some guys with skill who want more ice time, Quenneville said. source: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/nov/4/blackhawks-crawford-blanks-canadiens-5-0/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS

Blackhawks’ Crawford blanks Canadiens 5-0 – Washington Times

Chicago Blackhawks

Frolik, a former Blackhawks player, skated across the crease, closed in from the left side and lifted the puck past Crawford’s glove as the goalie sprawled while trying to stop the shot. Chicago’s Patrick Sharp broke in alone with 3:40 left in the first and faked Hutchinson to the ice, but his shot clanked off the right post. Toews fired a drive from the left circle off the left post midway through the second during a Chicago power play. Hutchinson stopped another prime chance by Sharp moments later. The Blackhawks shot wide on some of their best chances in the third period. NOTES: Hutchinson was pulled early in the second period of his only previous start this season, a 4-1 loss at Los Angeles on Oct. 12, after he allowed three goals on 13 shots. He also replaced Pavelec in the third period of a 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Oct. 24. This was Hutchinson’s sixth career NHL game. … source: http://www.ctpost.com/sports/article/Hutchinson-Jets-beat-Blackhawks-1-0-5865638.php
