20. The Blackhawks had beaten Calgary and Edmonton before a 3-2 victory at Colorado on Wednesday. Jonathan Toews , Andrew Sharp and Brian Bickell scored, while Patrick Kane also pitched in with his first three-assist night since Dec. 8, 2013. Two of the three goals came on the power play, making it six straight games in which Chicago has scored with the advantage after netting two in its previous five. “We’ve been pleased and happy with it,” coach Joel Quenneville said of his power-play unit, which ranks among league leaders with 19 goals. “Two big goals got the momentum back on our side. What a hockey game that was, anybody’s hockey game.” The Blackhawks’ lone loss on the swing came at Vancouver on Sunday. The circus trip has proved successful for them in years past. They went 6-1 last season to improve to 22-11-4 since Toews and Kane entered the NHL in 2007. “That was a really big win for us,” said Corey Crawford, who made 27 saves for his 10th win. “After a tough loss in Vancouver, it was nice to get back on track. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-ducks-preview-212630066–nhl.html

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

We had some players who came out and played very hard from the start, said Kane, who scored his 10th of the season into en empty net with 59 seconds left. Getting up 2-0 was huge. But I thought the third period was our best period, to be honest. We really took it to them, but we couldnt capitalize because their goaltender was awesome and kept them in the game. Corey Crawford made 23 saves, helping the Blackhawks win for the fifth time in six games. Defenseman Hampus Lindholm scored for the two-time defending Pacific Division champions and Andersen stopped 34 shots in his first career appearance against Chicago. They were the better team today, Anaheim center Ryan Kesler said. I can sit here and make excuses, but we just werent good enough. We have a lot of NHL-caliber players in here. Freddie played a great game, and we let him down. The Blackhawks were leading 3-1 when Anaheims Kyle Palmieri received a 5-minute boarding penalty and an automatic game misconduct with 9.4 seconds left in the second period. He took a run at Johnny Oduya from at least 40 feet away and sent him crashing against the boards between the benches as Oduya was carrying the puck up ice with his head down. My view was that (Oduya) was falling and he was turning at the same time, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. Palmi didnt change his direction, didnt hit him in the head just kept following through with the check. source: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/11/28/blackhawks-rout-ducks-4-1/
