Crawford Gets 2nd Straight Shutout for Blackhawks
CHICAGO (AP) -- Corey Crawford made 24 saves for his second straight shutout and Dave Bolland and Fernando Pisani had a goal and an assist apiece Wednesday night to lead the Chicago Blackhawks past the Colorado Avalanche 4-0.

It was Chicago's first win in four games against the Avalanche this season in their final regular-season meeting.

The defending Stanley Cup champions scored two quick goals in the first period and Crawford made it stand up after the rookie goaltender blanked the Islanders 5-0 on Sunday.

Troy Brouwer scored Chicago's first goal and Jack Skille added a rebound goal in the third to help the Blackhawks win their third straight.
