Blackhawks G Corey Crawford, just back from upper-body injury, removed after 1st period

ST. LOUIS - Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, who just returned from an injury this week, has been removed after the first period against St. Louis.

Crawford made six saves to help the streaking Blackhawks take a 1-0 lead into the first intermission Thursday. Chicago began the night with at least one point in its first 19 games (16-0-3), an NHL record.

Crawford, who was 8-0-3, was making his second start since returning from an upper-body injury on Sunday. He made 28 saves in a 1-0 win over Columbus after missing the previous four games.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
