Kane goes down in Blackhawks’ shutout

– 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).

Crawford earned his 10th career shutout.

LIGHTNING 5, MAPLE LEAFS 3: In Toronto, 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. He was “stable, conscious and alert,” according to the Maple Leafs, after being taken to the hospital for what the team called a “precautionary assessment.”

JETS 5, AVALANCHE 4, OT: In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Blake Wheeler scored in overtime on a shot through the crowd to give Winnipeg the win.
