A road trip to La Belle Provence seemed to be just what the doctor ordered. After losing 1-0 on Sunday night at the United Center, the Hawks adjusted their line up heading into Montreal on Tuesday. It sent a message to most of the Hawks as they skated their way to a 5-0 victory over the Canadiens.
Home town kid, Corey Crawford obtained his first shutout of the year and 11th of his career, making 27 saves. Jonathan Toews scored and early power play goal and the “fourth” line did the rest with Kris Versteeg, Bryan Bickell and Marcus Kruger combining for 4 points.
Patrick Sharp was injured in the third, being helped off the ice and did not return. Coach Q mentioned after the game that he would be “out for a bit”, but the team won’t know for sure until they return back to Chicago.
