Corey Crawford is not worried about his recent struggles.

"Every guy goes through it," Crawford said. "There's not one goalie in the league, in history, that's ever gone through full season without some sort of down during the year. It's almost impossible to do that." He feels he needs to read plays better in order to get back on track. Chicago will start Scott Darling on Friday night to give Crawford a breather.
Jan 20 - 9:12 AM

Scott Darling will play between the pipes on Friday.

Darling last started in a game on Jan. 6, so he could use the work to stay fresh. He has a 11-4-2 record, 2.34 GAA, and .924 save percentage in 20 contests this season.
