St. Louis • Corey Crawford stopped 30 shots and the Chicago Blackhawks got goals from Bryan Bickell and Marian Hossa for a 2-0 win over St. Louis on Sunday, ending Blues goalie Brian Elliott's shutout streak at three games.

The Blackhawks lead the NHL with 68 points and have won five in a row. They're 3-1 against the Blues, all with Crawford in net.

The Blues rarely tested Crawford until the third period and lost their second straight in front of a standing-room crowd of 19,385 that had a healthy contingent of Blackhawks fans. St. Louis has seven games remaining, all but one at home.

Sabres 3, Lightning 1 • In Buffalo, N.Y., Jhonas Enroth stopped 32 shots in helping the Sabres keep up their late-season playoff push with a win over slumping Tampa Bay. Tyler Ennis got his first goal in 12 games, and Jochen Hecht and Kevin Porter also scored for Buffalo (18-19-6). EASTERN CONFERENCE
