Artem Anisimoscored and assisted twice in the Blackhawks’ 5-1 win against the Stars on Saturday night.

There’s not doubt that Anisimov is benefitting from his linemates. That’s not to say he isn’t an effective player. It’s just that with 18 goals and 31 points, it’s not like he’s terrorizing the league, despite what it seemed like earlier this year. Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook and Trevor van Riemsdyk got the other goals. Artemi Panarin had two assists.

Corey Crawford blocked 36 shots in the Blackhawks’ 5-1 win against the Stars on Saturday night.

Crawford gave up a goal to Tyler Seguin in the first period and that was it. He has been quite good this season, now with a 31-12-3 record, 2.15 GAA and .930 SV%. With numbers like that, he should be in the Vezina running.

Viktor Svedberg, Jiri Sekac, and Rob Scuderi will each be scratched from Saturday's match with Dallas.

This will be Scuderi's third straight on the pine, while tonight marks two in a row for both Svederg and Sekac. Considering how little they each impact the stat sheet, this is of little consequence to fantasy pools.

Corey Crawford will face Dallas on Saturday night.

Crawford comes in leading the league in games (44) and saves (1,216), and he also has a sterling 30-12-2 record. He's also rocking the best save percentage of his career at .930, and there's no reason to believe he'll slow down any time soon.
Feb 6 - 7:14 PM

Duncan Keith has become a rover on the Blackhawks' power play.

He has free reign to move all over the ice. "It's kind of a new challenge," Keith said. "I've never done that position before, so I was actually excited to try it out. It's a position where I have the ability to roam around and support and freewheel a little bit. I'm kind of all over the place." Chicago has gone 0-for-11 on the power play in the last three games, but Keith has racked up 11 man-advantage points this year.

Jonathan Toews wasn't going to lose to Arizona on Thursday night.

The Blackhawks' captain picked up a pair of goals, including his league-leading fifth overtime winner of the season. Toews now has 23 goals and 39 points on the season.
Feb 5 - 1:43 AM

With his trio of assists on Thursday's night, Artemi Panarin picked up his sixth three-point game of the season.

Though, it was his first career three-assist game. He now has 11 multi-point games as well, in just his rookie campaign. Simply remarkable, Panarin now has 32 assists and 50 points in 55 games thus far.
Feb 5 - 1:41 AM

Marian Hossa picked up his eighth multi-point game of the season in Thursday's 5-4 win over Arizona.

Hossa's totals however are only up nine goals and 26 points overall this season with his goal and assist tonight. Which means he's only registered a point in 17 of 50 games this season.
Feb 5 - 1:38 AM

Patrick Kane picked up his 31st goal of the season during Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over Arizona.

Kane is running away with the scoring title, now up to 75 points in just 51 games this season. Simply remarkable.
Feb 5 - 1:35 AM

Don't look now, but Michal Rozsival has a point streak.

That's right the veteran scored again, though it was only his second goal and sixth point of the season. So we'd leave him out on the wire.
Feb 5 - 1:33 AM

Corey Crawford picked up his 30th win of season during Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over Arizona.

Crawford's glorious season continues, even if this one stands out as his second three-goal or more game over his last three. Regardless, he stands at 30-12-2 now and it doesn't seem as though he or the Blackhawks are slowing down any time soon.
Feb 5 - 1:30 AM

Jiri Sekac is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Blackhawks won't give Sekac a crack at his old team. The 23-year-old forward has played in two of a possible five games since being acquired from the Ducks via trade. He has one goal and three points in 24 games this season. Viktor Svedberg and Rob Scuderi will serve as the other scratches.

Corey Crawford will get the start in Thursday's game against Arizona.

The 31-year-old has a 29-12-2 record with a 2.11 goals-against-average and a .931 save percentage this season. He's won 11 of his last 13 contests and he'll continue to be a solid fantasy option going forward.
Feb 4 - 6:56 PM

Jonathan Toews is healthy again and he'll be back in the lineup on Thursday night.

Toews had eight days between games because of the break and his suspension on Tuesday for missing the All-Star Game. He was having trouble breathing during shifts when he last played on Jan. 26, which is why he didn't skate in the third period. Toews looked well-rested and ready after taking part in Wednesday's practice.
Feb 4 - 8:51 AM

Marcus Kruger (wrist) remains on track to return around the beginning of the playoffs.

Kruger shouldn't be counted on to play again in the regular season though, so if you're holding onto him in a single season league, you should reconsider. You'd have to be in a very deep league to have picked him up in the first place though as he has just an assist in 33 games this season.
