Blackhawks Thankful For Having 2 Good Goalies
Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says having two talented goaltenders has been a key factor during the team's record-breaking start.

The Blackhawks (19-0-3) welcomed back Corey Crawford on Sunday from an injury. He helped them extend an NHL-record, season-opening point streak to 22 games in a 2-1 shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings.

When Crawford was not healthy enough to play, Ray Emery, has been perfect. The backup goalie in 9-0 in starts and is among league leaders with a 2.02 goals-against average in 10 games.

Chicago's next chance to extend its streak will be Tuesday at home against the Minnesota Wild.
