The Chicago Blackhawks were coming home after being swept in Florida, losing to the Lightning on Thursday and the Panthers on Friday. The Blackhawks looked tired and sluggish in those losses. In the first 20 minutes against the Blues, it was more of the same sluggish, lifeless play. If Corey Crawford wasn’t on his game tonight, the Blackhawks would have lost this game by a wide margin. After the lifeless first period, the Blackhawks would get the offense going. Artemi Panarin scored the game’s first goal on sweet backhanded pass from Patrick Kane. Andrew Shaw would add a third-period power playgoal to seal the Blackhawks’ victory. Tonight’s shutout was the league-leading seventh for Crawford.
