Jeremy Colliton won his first game an NHL head coach on Wednesday night.

Colliton's Blackhawks were able to take down their Central Division rival, the St. Louis Blues, by a score of 1-0. Not only was it his first win, but it also put an end to Chicago's eight-game losing streak. "I’m just here to help them. So it's kind of awkward, actually," Colliton said of his players giving him the game puck. "But I do appreciate the gesture and for me, it’s just, hopefully we can get some momentum going and build on it."

Corey Crawford turned aside all 28 shots he faced in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Crawford put together a terrific performance on Wednesday Night Hockey, as he managed to keep the Blues off the board all night. He made a big bad save on David Perron with under 20 seconds remaining in regulation. Crawford's effort helped put an end to his team's eight-game losing streak. The 33-year-old has a 4-6-0 record with a 2.76 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage this season.

Brent Seabrook found the back of the net during Wednesday's 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Seabrook got credit for the goal, but Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was the one who kicked the puck into his own net. The Hawks defender finished the night with two shots on goal, one hit and three blocked shots in 22:12 of ice time. The 33-year-old has three goals and 10 points in 19 games this season. Seabrook struggles to keep up with opponents at this stage of his career, but he's off to a nice start offensively. The victory was new head coach Jeremy Colliton's first behind an NHL bench and it allowed the Blackhawks to put an end to their eight-game losing skid.

Cam Ward allowed three goals on 40 shots during Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Ward's former team got the better of him tonight. The Blackhawks were up 2-0 in the second period, but they allowed the 'Canes to score back-to-back power-play goals in the middle frame. In overtime, it was Sebastian Aho that beat Ward. The 'Hawks goaltender owns a 3-2-3 record with a 3.49 goals-against-average and a .887 save percentage this season. Ward doesn't need to be owned in any fantasy format.

Jonathan Toews found the back of the net during Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Toews tipped a Henri Jokiharju shot behind Carolina's Scott Darling at the 9:07 mark of the first period to give Chicago a 1-0 lead at the time. The 'Hawks went up 2-0 midway through the second frame, but they watched that lead evaporate thanks to the two power-play goals they allowed to the 'Canes in regulation. Sebastian Aho eventually scored the game-winner for Carolina in overtime. Toews finished the night with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and one blocked shot in 20:40 of ice time. The 30-year-old is up to nine goals and 14 points in 18 games this season.
