Corey Crawford allowed three goals on 28 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets on Friday night.
Crawford has really struggled out of the gate for the Blackhawks this season. We do not advise his fantasy owners to panic just yet. The Blackhawks have been terrible on the penalty kill this season and Crawford has only allowed three goals at even-strength all season. Once the Blackhawks get their penalties and penalty kill under control, Crawford's numbers will surely rise. His record drops to 1-3-0 this season. Oct 21 - 9:47 PM

Corey Crawford will be the Blackhawks' starter on Friday.

Oct 20 - 5:02 PM

Corey Crawford stopped 23 of 27 shots in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

25 minutes into the game, it looked like things were going to be easy for the Blackhawks, as they jumped out to a 4-0 lead. But the Flyers eventually came back to tie the game at four in the third period. Chicago managed to save face by scoring the last three goals of the game. Crawford improves his record to 1-2-0 on the season, but he owns an underwhelming 3.41 goals-against-average and a .884 save percentage. Despite the poor individual numbers, Crawford will be worth starting in standard fantasy leagues.

Corey Crawford allowed three goals on 27 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Crawford and the Hawks fall to 0-2-0 on the season, but the bigger story is that their penalty kill has been abysmal so far. Chicago has given up a total of six power play goals in their first two contests. Crawford will enter his next start with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage. Despite the rough start, fantasy owners shouldn't throw in the towel on Crawford.

Corey Crawford made 29 saves in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

The score doesn't indicate how close the game was. Two of St. Louis' five goals were scored with Crawford pulled in favor of an extra attacker. The 'Hawks goalie stopped every even-strength shot fired his way, but the Blues beat him three times on the power play. Despite the loss, Crawford remains one of the best fantasy options at his position.

Oct 12 - 1:23 PM

Corey Crawford gave up two goals in the 2-1 loss of the Chicago Blackhawks to the St Louis Blues in Saturday night’s preseason finale.

Chicago had few of their season starters in the lineup, however, so Crawford was playing with very little help. His save percentage of .905 was respectable in this light and he had a great opportunity to limber up for the regular season kickoff matchup with this same team on Wednesday, 10/12.
Oct 8 - 11:45 PM

Corey Crawford stopped 19 of 20 shots in Team Canada's 4-1 win over Team Europe at the World Cup of Hockey.

The win allows Canada to finish the round robin portion of the tournament with a perfect 3-0-0 record and in first place in the group. Crawford got the start in this game because coach Mike Babcock wanted to give Carey Price some rest after he played against Team USA last night. Crawford was solid, but expect Price to be back in goal in the semi-final. Canada will take on either Team Russia or Team North America in that game.
Sep 21 - 10:57 PM

Corey Crawford will get the start in Wednesday's game against Team Europe.

Carey Price will get the night off because Team Canada is playing two games in two nights. Regardless of who's in goal, Canada will still be considered the favorite to finish atop the group. Both teams will move on to the semi-final, but the winner of Wednesday's game will finish in first place, while the loser will finish in second position.

Corey Crawford turned in a solid performance against Team USA on Saturday night.

Canada took down the Americans 5-2 on Saturday after dropping Friday's pre-tournament game against the USA. Crawford stopped all 10 shots he faced, including a big save on Ryan McDonagh. "I lost my footing a little bit, made a quick fake and turned over I just kind of lost my push," Crawford said. "threw my stick out there and knocked it down." The crowd in Ottawa responded by chanting his name. Crawford probably won't see much action in the World Cup, but anything is possible in a short tournament.
Sep 11 - 9:56 AM

Corey Crawford and Braden Holtby combined to defeat the Americans in a 5-2 win on Saturday.

Holtby allowed two goals on 13 shots before leaving the crease to allow Crawford to stop all 10 shots he faced in the second and third periods. Even after a solid performance by Crawford, it would be a huge surprise to see him start Canada's opening game of the tournament over Price. It is still nice to see Crawford look good in such a big pre-tournament game.
Sep 10 - 10:16 PM

There were points before his breakthrough where Corey Crawford considered leaving the Chicago Blackhawks system to play overseas.

After the 2009-10 campaign, Crawford was 26 years old and had only appeared in a career total of eight NHL contests. "I stayed pretty motivated most of the time, but obviously it's hard to (be in the minors) for your entire career," Crawford said. "There were definitely times when I thought I'd might like to move on, maybe go play in Europe or go try and play in Russia if I could. There were times I didn't think I was good enough to play in the NHL. But really it was more about just taking it day by day and just still having fun. It was still fun for me playing in the minors and I think that was the most important thing, is going out there every day and being with your teammates and just enjoying it. That was the most important part for me." Crawford got his big break in the 2010-11 campaign and of course he's gone on to win the Jennings Trophy twice and the Stanley Cup twice.
