Brunette, Sharp Lead Blackhawks Past Canadiens
CHICAGO (AP) -- Andrew Brunette and Patrick Sharp scored 21 seconds apart midway through the second period, and Corey Crawford made 20 saves in his first start in more than two weeks as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Montreal Canadiens 5-1 on Wednesday night.

Viktor Stalberg scored midway through the third period and Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bickell added late goals for NHL-leading Chicago. The Blackhawks rebounded from a 3-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Tuesday, improving to 8-1-1 in their last 10 games.

Andrei Kostitsyn scored a power-play goal for Montreal, which lost its fourth straight, including the last three since interim coach Randy Cunneyworth replaced Jacques Martin last Saturday.

Crawford hadn't played since being pulled early in the second period of a 4-3 shootout loss to Phoenix on Dec. 5.
