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.

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.

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.

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.

Corey Crawford made 40 saves and the champions remained alive after Chicago thrust past L.A. 5-4 in double overtime on Wednesday night to prolong their Western Conference Final series with the Kings.

Game 5 was an instant classic, a shootout but at the same time a goaltending duel. Both Crawford and his counterpart Jonathan Quick showed signs of strength and weakness during the melee in Chicago, but in the end the Hawks outlasted the Kings to send the series back to California. Crawford allowed two goals in two minutes in the third period to let L.A. tie the game, but came up with some nifty stops in overtime to give his team a chance.
May 29 - 12:07 AM

Corey Crawford managed to stop only 16 of 20 shots as the Blackhawks dropped a 5-2 decision to Los Angeles Monday in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final.

Crawford was beaten three times on only eight shots in the first period as the Kings easily kept the hometown crowd in the game with strong offensive effort. Crawford's record dropped to 9-7 with a 2.34 GAA and a .918 save percentage. He will have to be better on Wednesday as the Blackhawks trail three games to one with Game 5 back in Chicago.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

Corey Crawford made 28 saves in Chicago’s 4-3 loss in Game 3 against Los Angeles on Saturday night.

The Blackhawks had a one-goal lead midway through the second period. Jeff Carter’s marker was the first of three unanswered against Crawford. With a 2.23 goals-against average and .923 save percentage, Crawford has certainly enjoyed a fine postseason. However, he has given up nine goals over his last two games. The Blackhawks will need him to be better if they want to tie up the series on the road in Game 4 on Monday night.
May 24 - 11:07 PM

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville didn't want to put the blame on Corey Crawford for Chicago's 6-2 loss on Wednesday.

Crawford stopped just 25 of 30 shots in the contest. "That was a team effort last night," Quenneville said on Thursday. "When we got behind 4-2, even 3-2, we were definitely taking more chances than we're accustomed to. We were pressing. Then came the high quality against us. One thing about Corey, he's been fine this entire playoffs (with) his consistency in how he moves to the next game, the next shot, next challenge. He should be commended on his approach, knowing we're going to LA and we’re going to need him to be big." Crawford has a 2.11 GAA and .926 save percentage in 14 playoff contests.

Corey Crawford stopped the first 17 shots he faced in Game 2, but allowed five goals on the final 13 shots as the Blackhawks blew a two goal lead and fell 6-2 to L.A. on Wednesday night.

It was a nightmare third period for the Blackhawks, who dropped their first game at the United Center in eight tries in the playoffs. Jeff Carter burned Crawford for a hat trick and four points in the final frame. Crawford had not allowed five goals in a game since Nov. 16th in Nashville prior to Wednesday night, and snapped an impressive three game stretch where he allowed just three goals versus Minnesota and Los Angeles.
May 21 - 11:18 PM

Corey Crawford continues his run of recent strong play as he helped the Chicago Blackhawks take a 3-1 win in Game 1 against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday.

Crawford made 25 out of 26 saves in a tight first contest of this third-round series. The underrated goalie has only allowed one goal in each of his last three games, all wins for the Blackhawks. He's enjoying another strong postseason run in 2014.

Although he is not as big a name as any of the other goalies left in the Stanley Cup hunt, Corey Crawford may finally be getting his due.

Carey Price, Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick may have received more accoldades in the past, but Crawford, who has already won a Stanely Cup, is finally getting the recognition he deserves. ‘"The bigger the game, the bigger the challenge, he seems to rise to that occasion," Hakes' coach Joel Quenneville said. "When you get good goaltending in the playoffs and you expect it, it really helps your team. The confidence that the goalie portrays seems to extend right through your team and right through your defense to your forwards." Chicago captain Jonathan Toews had this to say about Crawford: "It just seems like his job has gotten tougher over the last few years. Even [with] him being a huge part of our Stanley Cup-winning team last year, it doesn't seem like it's getting easier for him. But he keeps rising to challenges, picking his game up and improving in so many ways — especially mentally — to be able to handle that pressure."
May 17 - 11:33 AM

Corey Crawford stopped 34 of 35 shots in Chicago's 2-1 overtime win over Minnesota in Game 6 of their second round playoff series on Tuesday night.

Crawford shut down a Minnesota team that was repeatedly dangerous during the last 40 minutes of regulation and finished with 35 shots. He has been fantastic in the postseason with a 1.97 goals-against average and .931 save percentage.
May 14 - 4:43 AM

Goalie Corey Crawford made 27 saves as Chicago bounced back from consecutive losses in Minnesota with a 2-1 win over the visiting Wild Sunday night.

The Blackhawks now lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 and can advance to the Western Conference final with a win in Minnesota Tuesday night. Last night's victory gave the Hawks a 6-0 playoff record this season on their home ice. They are 17-2 at home in the playoffs the past two years. Last year, they won the Stanley Cup. Crawford improved his playoff record this year to 7-4-2 with Sunday's win. His GAA is 2.08 and his save percentage is .927.
