Corey Crawford was not listed among the top-10 goaltenders by the NHL Network.

Crawford was listed as a netminder who just missed the cut and was placed at No. 13 even though he had better numbers than some of the goalies ranked in the top-10. Jonathan Quick (No. 6) appeared in only 17 games last season because of a groin injury and he posted eight wins along with a .917 save percentage. Henrik Lundqvist (No. 8) finished with a .910 save percentage and a 2.74 goals-against average, while Martin Jones (No. 9) earned a .912 save percentage. Crawford registered a 32-18-4 record with a 2.55 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 2016-17. For what it's worth, Crawford shouldn't be considered as a top-10 fantasy option in the crease going into the 2017-18 campaign.

Corey Crawford allowed three goals on 25 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Crawford gave up three goals or more in Games 2, 3 and 4. He finishes the playoffs with a 2.84 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage. Crawford wasn't spectacular in the series, but the fact that his team only managed to score three goals in four games certainly didn't help.
