Nobody was clamoring to talk to him about being on the bench for the fourth time in five games while Robin Lehner, whom coach Jeremy Colliton tabbed to be in goal Tuesday night against the Predators, moved ahead of Crawford in starts for the season.A few minutes later, defenseman Brent Seabrook lumbered in after being one of the last to leave the ice.

It's a ploy coach Jeremy Colliton has insisted upon and is starting to pay off.

Wednesday night it was Crawford's turn, and he did something neither he nor the Blackhawks had been able to do since the Vegas Golden Knights entered the NHL in 2017.

BOX SCORE: BLACKHAWKS 5, GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3

Crawford made 39 saves and the Blackhawks beat Vegas 5-3 for their first victory over the Golden Knights.

"We've got two guys that are outstanding, and I think they're both going real well now and that's a huge advantage for us," Colliton said. "No matter who is in the net, we're getting a chance to win. It gives our guys a chance to come through offensively, so they've been big for us."

Crawford, who improved to 2-0-2 in his last four games, entered 0-3-0 versus Vegas with a 5.38 goals-against average and .859 save percentage.

Crawford , Blackhawks win 5 - 3 for 1 st victory over Vegas . Erik Gustafsson scored his first goal of the season, Corey Crawford made 39 saves and the Chicago Blackhawks beat Vegas 5 - 3 on Wednesday night for their first victory over the Golden Knights.

Corey Crawford turned away 35 of 36 shots, while Artem Anisimov put the Blackhawks ahead in the 3 rd in a 2-1 win against the Penguins.

Colliton said while both his goalies would like to be the primary starter, he's comfortable with a system that has helped the team to a 5-2-2 streak since Oct. 27.

"Part of that is keeping both guys fresh, keeping both guys playing at a high level, and that's going to be a benefit for us as the season goes on," Colliton said.

Calvin de Haan and Erik Gustafsson each scored his first of the season, and Patrick Kane, Kirby Dach and Dylan Strome also had goals for the Blackhawks.

During their nine-game run, the Blackhawks are tied with Florida for the second-most goals (30) in the NHL behind Boston, which has 35 in that span.

"I know that's been a long time coming playing these guys, so it's nice to beat them," de Haan said. "Tonight was kind of a track meet. We were taking a lot of odd-man rushes here and there, but we were creating a ton at the same time and obviously we just out-capitalized them. These guys play hard at home and we weathered their storm. It was a fun game to play."

Kirby Dach's 1st career 2-goal game sparks Blackhawks to a 4-1 win over the Sabres for their 4th straight victory

  Kirby Dach's 1st career 2-goal game sparks Blackhawks to a 4-1 win over the Sabres for their 4th straight victory CHICAGO - The night was supposed to be about a couple of kids trying to impress their former teams. A different kid ended up impressing everyone. Rookie Kirby Dach put in a pair of sweet backhanders for the first two-goal game of his career to lead the Blackhawks to a 4-1 win over the Sabres on Sunday at the United Center, their fourth straight victory to improve to 9-7-4. It was also their 10th consecutive home win over the Sabres, who lost for the eighth time in 10 games.

Terence Allan Crawford (born September 28, 1987) is an American professional boxer. He has held multiple world championships in three weight classes, including the WBO welterweight title since 2018.

Corey Crawford will start in goal for the Blackhawks when they take on the Washington Capitals at the United Center on Sunday, coach Jeremy Colliton confirmed after morning skate. Crawford is 3 - 5 -2 with a 3 .61 goals-against average and .881 save percentage in 10 career starts against the Capitals.

Meanwhile, in an attempt to shake up a stagnant offense that was outscored 11-7 while going 1-2-1 during its most recent road trip, coach Gerard Gallant shuffled Vegas' lines dramatically.

It seemed to spark the Golden Knights from the opening faceoff, as William Carrier and William Karlsson gave Vegas a 2-0 lead just 6:29 into the game.

But Kane answered 16 seconds after Karlsson's goal, extending his season-high point streak to seven games since Nov. 2.

The second period took a wild twist in favor of the Blackhawks, as Vegas went from thinking it was ahead 3-1 to trailing 3-2 in a matter of 65 seconds.

In his first game back from his second injury of the season, Vegas wing Alex Tuch lasered a shot past Crawford. The puck appeared to go in, setting off the lights and goal horn, but actually hit the crossbar and was ruled no goal.

Only 20 seconds later, de Haan beat Marc-Andre Fleury with a wrist shot over his glove to tie the game and swing energy further Chicago's way. And 45 seconds after that, Gustafsson took advantage of the momentum shift — and a Vegas turnover — to put the Blackhawks in front 3-2.

Stamkos re-aggravates lower-body injury vs. Blackhawks

  Stamkos re-aggravates lower-body injury vs. Blackhawks Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos re-aggravated a lower-body injury Thursday night versus the Chicago Blackhawks, head coach Jon Cooper said postgame, according to The Athletic's Joe Smith. Cooper added he's unsure if it will be a long-term issue, according to John Dietz of the Daily Herald. Stamkos played just 5:17 but remained on the bench for the entire game. He wanted to be there to support his teammates during the 4-2 victory, Cooper said, according to Bryan Burns of NHL.com.The Lightning are already without reigning MVP Nikita Kucherov as he deals with an upper-body injury he suffered Tuesday.Stamkos has posted seven goals and 13 assists in 19 games.

Patrick Kane notched four points and seven different Blackhawks lit the lamp in their 7-2 home victory over the Maple Leafs in Chicago.

Corey Crawford made 34 saves, Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist, and the Chicago Blackhawks advanced to the Western Conference finals for the fifth time in the last seven years with a 4- 3 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night for a four-game sweep. ST. PAUL, Minn.

"Hockey is a weird game and you can feel the momentum swing on the ice sometimes," de Haan said. "It took the wind out of their sails pretty quickly and we had a good second period for the rest of the period I thought.

"It was definitely a big part of the game."

Dach extended Chicago's lead early in the third with his third goal of the season, when the 18-year-old knocked his own rebound past Fleury, who stopped 21 shots but dropped to 10-6-4 against Chicago.

Strome beat Fleury over his glove with a little more than three minutes left to make it 5-2. Nate Schmidt closed the scoring with 1:01 to go.

It marked the third straight home game the Golden Knights squandered a lead, as they dropped to 4-4-2 in their own arena this season.

"Right now it's not putting the whole game together," Schmidt said. "We have spurts of the game where I feel like we dominated the game tonight, and then not have the resolve to keep going if something bad happens. To give up two goals, it takes the wind out of our sails."

NOTES: Since opening the season 6-3-0, the Golden Knights are mired in a 3-5-3 slide. ... The game marked former Golden Knight Ryan Carpenter's first at T-Mobile Arena since signing with Chicago after spending two seasons with the Golden Knights. Carpenter got his sixth assist on Dach's goal. ... Slater Koekkoek was a healthy scratch for Chicago, and Drake Caggiula is in concussion protocol. ... After registering a point in 13 of the first 15 games, Vegas' Mark Stone has been held pointless in five straight. ... Jonathan Toews move into a tie for 10th in franchise history with 891 games played for Chicago.
