Crawford blanked the Lightning -- stopping all 25 shots he faced -- en route to Monday's Stanley Cup clinching Game 6 win.

Crawford had a rocky start to the 2015 playoffs that led to his replacement by Scott Darling in the first round, but he rebounded strong as he concluded the tournament by allowing just 10 goals on 161 shots in the Finals (.938 save percentage). It's the second Stanley Cup for Crawford, as he wasn't on the 2010 squad, and it comes in one of his personal best seasons as he turned in a 2.27 GAA and .924 save percentage throughout the regular season.

Crawford will start in net for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Lightning on Monday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

Crawford is on fire entering Monday's game after stopping 55 of the last 57 shots that have come his way en route to back-to-back victories in Games 4 and 5. Assuming he performs in a similar fashion in Game 6, there's a plausible chance that he'll be credited with his second Stanley Cup trophy.

Crawford stopped 31 of 32 shots in Saturday's Game 5 win over Tampa Bay.

A fantastic outing from Crawford, who has turned in back-to-back outstanding performances. Having stopped 55 of the last 57 shots he's faced, the 30-year-old is now one win away from winning his second Stanley Cup in three years. If he can replicate his play from the last two games in Game 6 at the United Center Monday, Crawford could become a Stanley Cup champion once again.

Crawford will start Saturday at Tampa Bay in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

In the Blackhawks' two losses in Games 2 and 3, Crawford exhibited sieve-like tendencies, allowing seven goals on 56 shots. However, he's been staunch in the other two contests, accruing a .958 save percentage (46-for-48), meaning his performance could be the determining factor in taking a 3-2 series lead back to Chicago.

Crawford allowed just one goal on 25 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Lightning.

After allowing a few questionable goals in the last couple games, Crawford was phenomenal in Game 4, stopping 24 shots and withstanding a furious Tampa Bay onslaught in the final two minutes. He'll get the start in Saturday's pivotal Game 5, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Crawford stopped 29 of 32 shots in Monday's Game 3 loss to the Lightning.

Crawford made some big saves late in the second period to preserve a tie, but allowed the Bolts to even up the score just 13 seconds after the Hawks took the lead in the third period, then allowed the eventual game-winner with just over three minutes to go. He's allowed seven goals on just 66 shots in the past two games, but he'll look to right the ship in Wednesday's Game 4.

Crawford will be between the pipes in Monday's Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals against Tampa Bay, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

Although Crawford struggled a bit in Game 2 of the Finals, surrendering four goals on 24 shots on goal, it would be hard to imagine the Hawks turning away from their veteran goaltender at this juncture of the postseason. He'll look to post a bounce back performance on home ice in Game 3 of the Finals on Monday.

Crawford made 20 saves in Saturday's 4-3 loss in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

He was fine, but not great between the pipes and his coach said as much in the post-game media conference. He's a real battler, though, and playing at home for Game 3 should inject some excellence into his game.

Crawford will start in net against Tampa Bay in Saturday's Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

It's no surprise, as the Blackhawks have leaned heavily upon Crawford throughout their postseason campaign. He'll look to build on a strong performance in Game 1 of the Finals, in which he turned away 22 of the 23 shots he faced.
