Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford lost his shutout just more than three minutes into the second period Thursday against the New York Rangers. But for a goalie who has struggled mentally after allowing some goals, he shut it out.

Coach Joel Quenneville said Crawford ''was big and looked good in the net'' after making 22 saves in a 4-2 victory at Madison Square Garden that ended the Hawks' nine-game skid.

''It's nice to win again,'' Crawford said.
