St. Louis • Jonathan Toews scored twice, and Ray Emery and Corey Crawford combined on a shutout as the Chicago Blackhawks extended their NHL-record season-opening points streak to 20 games with a 3-0 win over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.
Andrew Shaw also scored for Chicago, which was coming off a 6-0-1 homestand and improved to 9-0-2 on the road. The Blackhawks, who have won seven in a row overall, have earned 37 out of a possible 40 points this season with a 17-0-3 start.
Chicago has a point in its last 26 regular-season games since a loss on March 25, 2012, to Nashville. Chicago, playing its first road game in 18 days, has won four in a row against St. Louis, which has lost three of four.
Crawford was pulled with an upper-body injury after making six saves in the first period.
