    Corey Crawford stopped 30 shots and the Chicago Blackhawks got goals from Bryan Bickell and Marian Hossa for a 2-0 win over St. Louis on Sunday, ending Blues goalie Brian Elliott's shutout streak at three games.

    The Blackhawks lead the NHL with 68 points, and have won five in a row. They're 3-1 against the Blues, all with Crawford in net.

    The Blues rarely tested Crawford until the third period and lost their second straight in front of a standing room crowd of 19,385 that had a healthy contingent of Blackhawks fans. St. Louis has seven games remaining, all but one at home.

    Bickell tapped in his own rebound on a rush early in the second period to end Elliott's streak at 214 minutes. Hossa's short-handed goal off a faceoff win by Jonathan Toews was the crusher early in the third, coming 17 seconds after Duncan Keith was whistled for cross-checking David Backes in front of the Chicago net.
