Crawford's work in goal helps Kane's shootout goal stand as Blackhawks beat Blue Jackets 2-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Patrick Kane set up Johnny Oduya's goal late in the second period and then got the decisive score in the shootout, leading the Chicago Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.

Corey Crawford stopped 29 shots to help the Blackhawks end a two-game losing streak after they set an NHL record by getting at least a point in each of their first 24 games.

Jack Johnson scored the tying goal for Columbus 52 seconds after Oduya put Chicago ahead, and Sergei Bobrovsky finished with 39 saves for the Blue Jackets, who set a franchise record by picking up a point in their ninth game in a row.

Columbus' Artem Anisimov and the Chicago's Jonathan Toews each scored to open the shootout.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
