Crawford makes 34 saves as Blackhawks blank Blues 2-0 in Game 3 of playoff series

CHICAGO - Corey Crawford made 34 saves in his third career post-season shutout, and the Chicago Blackhawks got back into their playoff series with the St. Louis Blues with a 2-0 victory in Game 3 on Monday night.

Jonathan Toews scored in the first period and Marcus Kruger added an empty-netter as Chicago bounced back after a pair of overtime losses in St. Louis. Toews' 21st post-season goal was only the second score by a Blackhawks forward in the series.

Ryan Miller shook off another slow start and made 23 saves for St. Louis.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
