Corey Crawford of Chicago Blackhawks won’t play vs. St. Louis Blues due to lower-body injury – ESPN Chicago

The Blackhawks (14-8-1) have totaled 25 goals while winning five of six overall. “We’ve got one more game left (on the trip) and we’ll be able to go home for a few days and relax,” Patrick Kane, who had two goals, told the team’s official website. “Might as well finish on a strong note.” Kane has heated up with six goals and seven assists in his past seven games. He had two goals and eight assists over the last four games of last season’s memorable conference finals versus Los Angeles. Jonathan Toews has six goals and nine assists in his last 10 regular-season games against the Kings. He’s scored six of his 10 goals away from home, including three on this six-game trip. Chicago had at least one power-play goal in six straight games before going 0 for 5 Friday. The unit still ranks among the NHL’s best with 19 goals, though the Kings have an impressive 89.7 penalty-kill percentage at home. Jeff Carter had five goals and Tyler Toffoli added four to help Los Angeles beat Chicago in the conference finals. Toffoli snapped a four-game goal drought Wednesday, while Carter will try to do the same in this contest. Williams hopes to extend a six-game point streak in which he’s scored three times with four assists. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-kings-preview-014301055–nhl.html
