Crawford Helps Blackhawks Edge Sabres 2-1

CHICAGO (AP) - Corey Crawford made 28 saves to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the winless Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

Ben Smith and Patrick Kane scored for the Blackhawks, who swept a pair of weekend home games, edging the Islanders 3-2 on Friday.   Drew Stafford connected with 8:11 left in the third, spoiling Crawford's bid for a shutout.

The Sabres (0-5-1) put together several tough challenges in the second and third periods despite being dominated earlier in the game and outshot 40-29.  Ryan Miller had 38 saves for Buffalo, which has been outscored 16-6 in its worst start since 1999-2000, when it was 0-5-2.
