Bryan Bickell scored his ninth of the season, Marian Hossa added a shorthanded goal and Corey Crawford earned his third shutout in the Blackhawks’ 2-0 win over the Blues at Scottrade Center for the Blues’ second loss in a row.
The Blues (23-16-2), who have dropped two straight after winning a season-best six in a row, got 24 stops from Brian Elliott. The Blues were blanked on home ice for the third time this season, including the second time by the Blackhawks, who won 3-0 on Feb. 28. Coach Ken Hitchcock was denied on his second bid to win his 600th career game.
Bickell’s goal Elliott’s shutout streak at 214 minutes. He has the franchise record for most consecutive shutout minutes at 241:33, set last season from March 15-April 4. Elliott came into the game with three consecutive shutouts — all on the road.
