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

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.

— Senators goalie Andrew Hammond, who defeated the Jets on Wednesday to improve to 6-0-1 since making his first NHL start on Feb. 18
