Crawford won his sixth consecutive game and improved to 15-5-5 against the Blues. Chicago has earned a point in nine straight games.

Panarin scored on a wrist shot from the slot for his sixth goal of the season.

St. Louis' Alex Pietrangelo tied it with 2:11 left in the third on a drive from the point that squeezed past Crawford, who got a piece of the shot.

Chicago has outscored opponents 30-15 during this nine-game run.

Jake Allen made 28 saves for the Blues. He has lost three of his last four and fell to 5-4-2.

This is the Blackhawks longest winning streak since they won 12 in a row from Dec. 29, 2015 to Jan. 19, 2016.
