Blackhawks top Blues 3-0, extend season-opening points streak to 20 games

ST. LOUIS - Jonathan Toews scored twice, and Ray Emery and Corey Crawford combined on a shutout as the Chicago Blackhawks extended their NHL-record season-opening points streak to 20 games with a 3-0 win over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Andrew Shaw also scored for Chicago, which was coming off a 6-0-1 homestand and improved to 9-0-2 on the road. The Blackhawks, who have won seven in a row overall, have earned 37 out of a possible 40 points this season with a 17-0-3 start.

Chicago, playing its first road game in 18 days, has won four in a row against St. Louis, which has lost three of four.

Crawford was pulled after making six saves in the first period. He missed four games earlier this month with an upper-body injury and returned to the lineup Sunday, making 28 stops in a 1-0 win over Columbus.

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
