DETROIT (AP) - Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville started Corey Crawford against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday and the goaltender finished with 32 saves in a 2-1 shootout victory.
Crawford left his last game with an upper-body injury. He played in only the first period of Thursday night's win at St. Louis. Ray Emery relieved Crawford against the Blues and finished off a 3-0 shutout.
Quenneville insists Crawford's latest injury isn't the same one that took him off the ice earlier this season.
Emery played and Crawford was a reserve on the bench Friday night in a 4-3 overtime win over Columbus that extended the Blackhawks' NHL-record, season-opening points streak to 21 games. Emery is 9-0 as a starter and ranks among NHL leaders with in save percentage and goals-against average.
