Patrick Kane handed out three assists in the Blackhawks 3-2 win over Colorado on Wednesday.

Kane was magic all night long in facilitating all of the Blackhawk goals for his fourth multi-point effort in the last five games. The Hawks superstar is officially on fire with 11 points in his last six games. Jonathan Toews, Bryan Bickell and Andrew Shaw were all benefactors with goals thanks to Kane’s outstanding play.

Corey Crawford turned aside 26-of-28 shots in the Blackhawks’ 3-2 win over the Avalanche on Wednesday night.

It was Crawford’s 10th win of the season in a nice bounce back effort from the loss in Vancouver for the Chicago number one. Crawford now has wins in six of his last eight starts and carries a stellar 1.98 goals against average to go with a .926 save percentage into this next start for the Hawks.

Jeremy Morin and David Rundblad will be healthy scratches against the Avalanche on Wednesday night.

In two dozen combined games, Morin and Rundblad have just two assists. Both are by Rundblad who has just nine of those games played.

Ben Smith wants to contribute more offensively.

He has one goal and one assist in 21 games this season, but coach Joel Quenneville is satisfied with the way Smith is playing. "When you look at guys that, they're doing other things," said Chicago's bench boss. "They've got a big responsibility on the PK, and they're doing the job in that area. That's why it was such a nice year [last season] for him; the production was a bonus on top of that." He posted 14 goals and 26 points in 75 matches in 2013-14.

Teuvo Teravainen is trying to make the most of his time in the AHL, but he doesn't sound happy to be there.

"I don't know if I'm happy or if I'm not happy," Teravainen said. "I'm just trying to play. It's pretty hard playing here. It's different hockey. It's not my type of hockey maybe, AHL hockey. I think there's differences with NHL hockey and AHL hockey, but I'm just trying to do my job there and try to play my best." Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman admitted that it can be harder to play in the minors, especially for young players "because it's a bit more scattered" than the NHL. Teravainen has two goals and 10 points in 17 games with Rockford this campaign.

Andrew Shaw (upper body) appears to be on track to return to Chicago's lineup on Wednesday.

He was close to returning over the weekend and the Blackhawks sent Phillip Danault to the minors on Monday. Shaw has sat out the last three games with an upper-body injury.
Nov 25 - 9:56 AM

Phillip Danault has been reassigned to AHL Rockford.

Danault played in two games with the Blackhawks during his stint with the big club and he made his NHL debut on Nov. 22 against Edmonton.

Antti Raanta (illness) was able to serve as Corey Crawford's backup on Sunday.

He was scheduled to start Saturday's game versus the Oilers, but couldn't play because he wasn't feeling well. Raanta hasn't seen any game action since Oct. 25 in a 3-2 loss to St. Louis.
Nov 24 - 12:05 PM

Corey Crawford allowed three goals on 29 shots in Chicago's 4-1 loss to Vancouver.

The loss snaps Crawford's personal three-game winning streak. Canucks' forward Jannik Hansen got the better of Crawford tonight, as he beat him twice (and added an empty netter). Crawford is 9-5-1 with a 1.98 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage.
Nov 24 - 12:29 AM

Kris Versteeg scored Chicago's only goal in their 4-1 loss to Vancouver on Sunday night.

Versteeg tied the game at one in the second period before the Canucks exploded offensively in the third period. The 28-year-old has collected a point in each of his last four games. He has seven goals and 14 points in 17 games this season. Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook collected the assists on Versteeg's goal.
Nov 24 - 12:24 AM

Daniel Carcillo is expected to draw in while Jeremy Morin and David Rundblad will be healthy scratches Sunday night in Vancouver.

Carcillo is also on call ready to head back to Chicago as his wife is about to give birth. Said Carcillo, "It’s going to be a nice change to have two other people in your life, and do everything for them." Morin and Rundblad are healthy scratches, but it seems like Morin could see some action in Carcillo's place soon.
Nov 23 - 8:51 PM

Andrew Shaw will miss his third straight game with an upper body injury on Sunday night.

Shaw skated in Sunday morning in Vancouver but it appears Coach Q isn't quite ready to put Shaw back in just yet.
