Corey Crawford stopped 30 of 31 shots in Chicago's 4-1 win in Game Two against Minnesota.
Crawford was fairly good in this contest, but he will definitely want to have Matt Dumba's goal back. It's been an interesting postseason for Crawford, as he has already lost the starting job once but regained it at the end of the first round. The 30-year-old has gotten the job done for the most part since taking back his starting gig, but it will be interesting to see how far the Hawks can go with spotty goaltending. For now, Crawford will continue to be their guy unless he gives them reason to go back to Scott Darling. May 3 - 11:30 PM

Corey Crawford will get the start in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

The Blackhawks lead the series 1-0, but they will be looking for more from their goaltender. Crawford played well in the first and third periods, but he was shelled for three goals in the second period in game one. The 30-year-old has a 2-1 record with a 3.81 goals-against-average and a .871 save percentage in the 2015 playoffs.

Although he struggled in the second period of Friday night's 4-3 win over Minnesota, Corey Crawford rebounded for a nice third period and likely earned Sunday's Game 2 start.

The Wild scored three goals in the second and it looked as if Crawford was wilting (although two goals were not really his fault). However, Crawford stood tall in the third frame and made some crucial saves in the dying minutes of the contest to preserve the 4-3 win. He will likely be between the pipes Sunday evening.

Corey Crawford managed to cobble together 30 saves on Friday night, just enough to secure a 4-3 Game One victory over Minnesota.

Truth be told, it was a night to forget for both Crawford and Devan Dubnyk as there wasn't a good goal between them. Crawford however found a way to stem the tide of the Wild's onslaught after having forfeited a 3-0 lead. It's been a shakey playoffs for Crawford, to say the least but he's 2-1 now in four games with 12 goals against on 93 combined shots.

Corey Crawford will be between the pipes for Game 1 against Minnesota when the second round of the NHL playoffs begins.

"It's his net," Joel Quenneville said. "Let's go." Crawford started just two games for the Blackhawks and appeared in three during the team's first-round series victory over Nashville. He was relegated to backup duty because of Scott Darling, but got a chance to get back in for Game 6 after Darling struggled in his past two outings.

There's a strong possibility that the Chicago Blackhawks will turn to Corey Crawford in game one of their second round series.

Crawford was pulled in the first two games of Chicago's first round series against Nashville, and he officially lost his starting job in game three. The Hawks pulled Scott Darling in game six and Crawford came in and played extremely well to lead Chicago to a series clinching win. "Well, we’ll let you know but I think you know who’s going to start the next game," coach Joel Quenneville said with a grin. "[Crawford] did everything we wanted him to do. He had a couple looks there when he first came in and got comfortable as the game went along. That was a big test right there. Great response."

Goalie Corey Crawford came off the bench and turned in a strong effort to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the visiting Nashville Predators 4-3 Saturday night.

The win gave the Hawks the right to advance in the Stanley Cup playoffs, as they eliminated the Preds in six games in the best-of-seven, Western Conference First Round playoff series. Crawford play a relatively key role in the game. Crawford, who hadn’t started since Game 2 in Nashville, redeemed himself for a shaky start to the series by stopping all 13 shots he faced, although the Predators could fire only two shots at him in the first and four in the third. Crawford relieved Scott Darling in the first. Darling was shaky, allowing three goals on 12 shots before being yanked. Crawford finished the series with a 1-0 record in three appearances, a goals-against average of a not-too-pretty 4.19 and a save percentage of .850. Despite his poor series, he finished off in fine fashion and don't be surprised if the veteran gets the bulk of the action between the pipes for the Hawks in the next round.

Corey Crawford is disappointed that he isn't starting Game 4, but he's taking it in stride.

"Not going to lie, it was pretty frustrating at first," Crawford said. "I want to be in the net and I want to play ... but that's not my job right now. Right now my job is to battle hard in practice, be positive in the room and encourage the guys." He had started every playoff game for the Blackhawks since 2011, but his 58-game streak ended Sunday when Scott Darling got the nod. Darling will be back in the crease for Game 4 on Tuesday night.

Corey Crawford won't be Chicago's starter in game three against Nashville, but his coach expects him to be a professional about it.

"I would expect ‘Crow’ to handle it like a pro," Joel Quenneville said. "I think he would be understanding knowing that competitive instinct (of wanting) to be in the net (and) you can’t wait to get it back (in) there. I’m sure he’s probably not happy. But I can’t really say exactly how he handled it." Crawford has struggled mightily in the first two games of the playoffs, and backup goaltender Scott Darling has really elevated his play.
Apr 19 - 9:30 AM

Corey Crawford had his second straight horrendous game, allowing six goals on 35 shots. Nashville would go on to take Game Two handily, 6-2 on Friday night.

Crawford has now surrendered nine goals on 47 shots in just four periods of play to open the first round series against Nashville. While it'd be accurate to say that his defense hasn't supported Crawford enough, the buck stops with him. And the Blackhawks are lucky the series is only tied at one.
Apr 18 - 1:08 AM

Corey Crawford will start in Game 2 against Nashville after he was pulled Wednesday night.

He surrendered three goals on 12 shots in the first period and was replaced by Scott Darling at the start of the second. Darling turned aside all 42 shots he faced and Chicago rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win the game in double overtime. However, coach Joel Quenneville will go back to his number one netminder on Friday night.

Corey Crawford and Carey Price will share the William M. Jennings Trophy.

The award goes to "the goaltender(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it ... based on regular-season play." The Blackhawks and Canadiens finished the year with a league-low 189 goals allowed. Crawford won the award in 2012-13 and this is Price's first Jennings Trophy.

Corey Crawford could start Saturday night against Colorado even if though there doesn't appear to be anything on the line for Chicago.

The Hawks have clinched a playoff spot and will open the post-season on the road. However, they may want to avoid falling to a wildcard spot, which they could do, if they lose to the Avalanche and the Wild defeat the Blues. For that reason, we believe Chicago coach Joel Quenneville could opt for Crawford in goal.
Apr 11 - 11:26 AM

Corey Crawford lost his third straight game on Thursday night, as he allowed two goals on 25 shots to let the Blues beat the Hawks 2-1.

Crawford has allowed two goals in each of his past three losses. He is 32-20-5 this season with a .924 save percentage and 2.27 goals against average. Crawford has a .912 save percentage and 2.53 goals against average in the playoffs last season, which kick off next week.
Apr 10 - 1:42 AM

Corey Crawford will get the start in Thursday's divisional clash against St. Louis.

There's a realistic possibility that these two teams could meet in the first round of the playoffs. Crawford has an impressive 12-3-3 record with a 2.24 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage in his career against the Blues but he did allow two goals on 33 shots in a loss to them last week.
