* Gabriel Landeskog scored two goals against Arizona on Tuesday for his first multi-goal performance of the season, while extending his current point streak to four games (2g, 4a). Landeskog has six goals in his career against Chicago – tied for the most goals in his career against any opponent (6 vs. Minnesota).

* Corey Crawford is winless (0-4-2) with a 4.38 GAA in his last six starts against Colorado and will be seeking his first victory over them since October 20, 2011. Crawford’s 1.98 GAA is the second-best mark among all NHL goalies this season (minimum 15 starts).
