The Blackhawks were expecting a hard-fought, low-scoring affair against the NHL’s top team Wednesday night, and that’s exactly what they got.
They also got a lot of help from Corey Crawford and Marian Hossa.
Crawford recorded his first shutout of the season and Hossa scored early in the second period to help lift the Blackhawks to a 2-0 victory at Honda Center. Jonathan Toews scored the Hawks’ second goal with 2 minutes, 31 seconds to go in the final period, his 19th of the season.
