The Chicago Blackhawks staggered home last week in desperate need of some positive results. Enter goalie Corey Crawford — and a perfectly timed homestand against three of the worst teams in the NHL.

Artem Anisimov, Tommy Wingels and Nick Schmaltz scored in the third as Chicago earned its second straight win after dropping five in a row.

Blackhawks' goal-scoring leader? Surprise — it's not Patrick Kane

Sometimes leaders also have to follow. Patrick Kane’s 27 points through 25 games are tops on the Blackhawks, which is no surprise. But his 10 goals leave him looking up at Artem Anisimov and Alex DeBrincat. Both had Novembers to remember. Anisimov scored nine of his 12 goals during the month, while...
