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

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
