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.
