Randy Cunneyworth is still searching for his first win as coach of the Montreal Canadiens.
Corey Crawford made 20 saves as the Chicago Blackhawks remained red-hot at home with a 5-1 victory over the Canadiens on Wednesday night.
Crawford wasn't busy but stayed sharp, earning the win in his first action since getting pulled from a Dec. 5 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. The Montreal native has allowed just three goals in two career starts against the Canadiens, who have dropped four straight games and fell to 0-3 under Cunneyworth.
The victory improved the Blackhawks to 12-2-3 at home, the third-best mark in the NHL.

1) Michael Cammalleri has 3 goals in his last 24 games. Good for him for setting up a couple in the couple of games leading up to last night.
It's beyond comprehension as to how he could have such a poor effort in Chicago. Forget the fact that he and his linemates combined for a -9 rating last night; staring at the ref for a too many men call that wasn't coming while the...

There's also the little problem of having played Tuesday night...
