 CHICAGO (AP) - Corey Crawford stopped 23 shots for his second shutout this season, backstopping the Blackhawks to a physical 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night that gave Chicago coach Joel Quenneville his 700th NHL win.
It was a costly victory for the Blackhawks, though. Leading scorer Patrick Kane left the game at 7:56 of the second period, favoring his left leg as he headed to the dressing room following a collision with Brenden Morrow.
Kane is expected to miss about three weeks, Quenneville said.
Duncan Keith, Andrew Shaw, Marcus Kruger and Ben Smith scored as Chicago ended the league-leading Blues' nine-game point streak (8-0-1) and dealt St. Louis its first regulation loss against a Central Division opponent this season. The Blues entered 20-0-2 against division foes and hadn't lost in regulation since a 1-0 defeat at Anaheim on Feb. 28.
Quenneville, who previously guided St. Louis and Colorado, has the most wins of any active NHL coach and ranks third all-time behind Al Arbour and Scotty Bowman, now the Blackhawks' senior adviser of hockey operations.
Crawford earned his 10th career shutout in Chicago's first win against the Blues this season after three losses.
Kane, who has 29 goals and 40 assists in 68 games, assisted on Keith's opening goal.
St. Louis goalie Ryan Miller lost in regulation for the first time since joining the Blues following a trade from Buffalo on Feb. 28. Miller, now 7-1-1 with St. Louis, was replaced by Brian Elliott at 7:58 of the third period after allowing four goals on 27 shots.
LIGHTNING 5, MAPLE LEAFS 3
TORONTO (AP) - Steven Stamkos had a natural hat trick and Tampa Bay beat Toronto in a game that included a frightening injury to Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger.
Ranger left the ice on a stretcher after his head hit the boards following a first-period hit from Alex Killorn. Ranger was ''stable, conscious and alert,'' according to the Maple Leafs, after being taken to the hospital for what the team called a ''precautionary assessment.''
Toronto announced the update on Ranger's condition on its Twitter account during the second intermission.
Killorn was given a 5-minute major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.
James Reimer gave up a goal on the first shot he faced, and the Maple Leafs lost their third straight.
Stamkos, in his seventh game back after missing four months with a broken right leg, scored his three goals on three shots. Radko Gudas had Tampa Bay's first goal 59 seconds in, and Tyler Johnson added an insurance goal. Ben Bishop made 36 saves.
Phil Kessel scored his team-leading 35th of the season for Toronto. Nikolai Kulemin and Jake Gardiner also had goals for the Maple Leafs.
JETS 5, AVALANCHE 4, OT
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Blake Wheeler scored in overtime on a shot through the crowd to lift Winnipeg over Colorado.
Andrew Ladd scored twice for the injury-depleted Jets. Eric Tangradi and Evander Kane also had goals.
Ryan O'Reilly, Gabriel Landeskog, Nick Holden and Cody Mcleod scored for Colorado.
It was the fourth time in five meetings this season that the Jets and Avalanche went to overtime.
