Corey Crawford yielded a goal on 20 shots in Chicago’s 2-1 overtime win Saturday night against the Predators.

The lone blemish for Crawford came on a Shea Weber power-play goal at 11:17 of the first period. If Crawford can tighten things up this season — which he’s done thus far — he can be among the best goalies in the NHL. You know the goal support will be there. Crawford is 3-0-1 with a 1.66 goals-against average and .926 save percentage this season.

Look for Corey Crawford to be between the pipes Saturday night against the Predators.

Not a real shock here. Crawford suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of the lowly Flames Wednesday night and will be looking to redeem himself against Nashville.

Chicago goalie Corey Crawford allowed two goals on only 18 shots Wednesday night as the Blackhawks took a 2-1 overtime loss from the visiting Calgary Flames.

While Crawford's goaltendending opponent, Jonas Hiller, was busy stopping 49 shots, Crawford didn't have to do much and was beaten in the final minute of overtime by a Mikael Backlund snap shot. Crawford, however, remains the unquestioned No. 1 goalie with the Hawks and will be playing plenty as the young season progresses. Crawford's goals-against average is 1.90 while his save percentage is .920. And his fantasy value is as strong as ever.

Corey Crawford is expected to start on Wednesday against Calgary.

Crawford has a 1.92 GAA and .930 save percentage in two starts. He might go on a considerable run of starts before getting his first game off as Chicago's schedule is pretty light for the first few weeks of the season.

Corey Crawford is expected to see plenty of action early in the season because the Blackhawks have a favorably-spaced schedule.

"Corey's going to play a lot," said coach Joel Quenneville. "[When] you've got a top guy and you've got time, you might as well play him. There's a lot of back-to-backs. [Backup Antti Raanta] will get a chance to play." Crawford has opened the year with two wins to go with a .930 save percentage and a 1.92 goals-against average.

Corey Crawford earned the easy victory with 21 saves as the Blackhawks defeated the Sabres 6-2 on Saturday night.

Crawford doesn’t necessarily have to be perfect every night with the offense that plays in front of him. He is coming of a year that saw him record a .917 save percentage, and a slight improvement from that could see him cross into the upper echelon of goalies. He has a 1.92 goals-against average and .930 save percentage this season.

Corey Crawford will be back between the pipes on Saturday as the Blackhawks take on the Buffalo Sabres.

Crawford will get the start in the home opener after stopping 32 shots in Dallas during a 3-2 win.
Oct 11 - 10:26 AM

Corey Crawford stole the show on opening night for Chicago, as the 29 year-old made 32 saves through 65 minutes and another three in the shootout to help the Hawks beat Dallas 3-2 on Thursday night.

"We have to call the cops," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "We stole two points tonight. [Crawford] was great... call that a goalie win." Jason Spezza, Tyler Seguin and Ales Hemsky were all turned aside by Crawford in the shootout, as Crawford begins the year with a 1-0 record and .941 save percentage.

Corey Crawford should have an easy time adjusting to goalie coach Jimmy Waite seeing as he used to work with Jimmy's brother, Stephane.

Jimmy Waite is replacing Steve Weeks as the team's goalie coach. "I'm my own person, but we do think the same way about goaltending," Jimmy said. "For 20 years, we've been talking goalies all the time, so Stephane and I think the same way." Jimmy places an emphasis on positioning and being selective about when the goaltender is aggressive.

Corey Crawford turned aside 27 shots as he and the Chicago Blackhawks squandered leads three times Sunday night and ended up on the short end of a 5-4 overtime outcome against the visiting Los Angeles Kings in the seventh and deciding game of the Western Conference Final series.

Crawford didn't have an outstanding series. He allowed 26 goals in the seven games. He finished the playoffs with a record of 11-8-3, a GAA of 2.53 and a save percentage of .912. Regardless of the way he performed in the Western final, though, he cannot be faulted for Alec Martinez's game-winning goal in overtime Sunday night. The Kings defenseman took a shot that hit Chicago defenseman Nick Leddy, who quickly and inadvertently redirected the puck over Crawford and into the net. For Chicago, the bid to become the first repeat champions in the NHL since the Detroit Red Wings in 1998 came up five wins short.

Corey Crawford will need to come up big on Sunday if the Blackhawks are to get by the Kings and play the Rangers for the Stanley Cup.

Crawford's numbers in the Conference finals are mediocre at best. He has allowed 21 goals and sports a .884 save percentage in the six games to date. Kings' goalie Jonathan Quick hasn't done much better. He has allowed 19 goals and has a .886 goals against average. One of these two is going to have to step up. The Hawks are hoping it is Crawford.
Jun 1 - 9:24 AM

Corey Crawford and Jonathan Quick exchanged what appeared to be harsh words at the end of the second period Friday night.

It appeared that Quick bumped into Crawford as the teams were exiting the ice and then shook his gloves at the Hawks' goalie as if he were inviting him to engage in fisticuffs. The two exchanged a few words that did not seem friendly and then left the ice. Nothing like a little goalie rivalry.
May 31 - 9:48 AM

Corey Crawford stopped 26 of 29 Kings' shot to pace the Hawks to a 4-3 win in Game 6 of the Western conference final.

With the win, Crawford boosted his playoff record to 11-7. The Hawks' starting netminder will certainly be in goal when the Hawks face the Kings Sunday night in Chicago.
May 30 - 11:58 PM

The Blackhawks don't feel like they've been supporting Corey Crawford very well.

"We haven't been playing as well defensively this series, compared to the other two series," said defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson. "It's more a reflection of how the whole team plays, and not just Crow. Especially on the penalty kill, we've been letting in way too many goals. We can make an overall better effort to play defense." Patrick Kane mentioned that Chicago is allowing too much traffic to get in front of Crawford. He has allowed 17 goals in his past four games and won one of them, but before the Western Conference Final he was Conn Smythe Trophy contender.
