|Crawford Helps Blackhawks Beat Wild 3-1
|CHICAGO (AP) _ Troy Brouwer's perfectly placed centering pass went off a Minnesota defenseman for the tiebreaking goal in the third period, helping Corey Crawford and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Wild 3-1 on Wednesday night without ailing coach Joel Quenneville.
Quenneville was admitted to a hospital with an undisclosed illness after he started feeling discomfort at home late Tuesday. Team physician Dr. Michael Terry said Wednesday morning Quenneville was in stable condition, and there was no update before the game.
Assistant Mike Haviland was in charge with Quenneville away, and the Blackhawks responded with a much-needed victory in their first home game since a 4-2 loss to Minnesota on Jan. 25.
