Crawford will back up Scott Darling on Monday for the Hawks against the Kings as they give him a breather in a back-to-back scenario, ESPN Chicago reports.

Crawford has slumped recently after surrendering at least three goals in four of his last five starts. While some of the blame should go on Crawford, he has not received help from the rest of the team, defensively and offensively. Crawford is expected to be back in goal on Thursday against Vancouver at home. He has not had quality starts against the Canucks this season allowing eight goals in two starts. Crawford though has been much better career mark against Vancouver with a 5-3-3 record in 11 starts and a 2.43 goals against average with a .920 save percentage.

Crawford denied 31 of 34 shots to score a narrow victory over the Jets on Sunday.

While Crawford was able to escape with the victory, his declining performance of late bears a little bit of concern heading into the postseason. He's surrendered at least three goals in four of his last five starts, with only one of the teams he's faced (Dallas) ranking among the league's top-10 scoring attacks. The favorable team context will still make Crawford a worthy play in weekly pools amid his struggles, but he's become a less attractive investment in daily formats at this time.

Crawford will start in net Sunday against the Jets, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Crawford has posted poor performances in three of his last four outings, but sandwiched between them is a 43-save performance. He'll get the call again Sunday, with the Blackhawks still battling for better playoff seeding late into the season.

Crawford was pulled Friday against Columbus after giving up four goals on 13 shots.

A disastrous outing for Crawford, who has given up four goals in back-to-back outings. The 30-year-old falls to 30-17-5 on the season with a .923 save percentage and 2.29 GAA. While he's given up four goals in three of his last four games, Crawford has played 52 games this season and is the undisputed starting goalie in Chicago. He's got some of the better rate stats in the NHL this season and should rebound fine.

Crawford will be in goal for Friday's game against the Blue Jackets, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

Crawford was beaten for four goals on 33 shot attempts in Wednesday's loss to the Flyers, a performance that was highly surprising considering how airtight the netminder had been over his last few contests. The 30-year-old is still enjoying a wonderful March (6-2-1, 1.88 GAA, .945 save percentage in nine starts), so it's probably safe to right off Wednesday's disaster as an aberration. He'll still for one of the best goalie plays on any given night.

Crawford allowed four goals on 33 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Flyers.

Crawford has been playing extremely well lately, and actually kept the Blackhawks in the game for a while Wednesday. His biggest problem right now is that the team in front of him is struggling to score points without Patrick Kane (collarbone), so Crawford needs to be on top of his game in order to earn victories.

Crawford will be in the crease for Wednesday's game against the Flyers, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Crawford suffered a minor scare during the Blackhawks' morning skate after taking a shot off his mask from teammate Bryan Bickell, but after briefly leaving the ice, he was able to return to the net and finish out his workout. With a crisis apparently averted, Crawford will enter the net Wednesday riding a wave of momentum. Dating back to Feb. 26, Crawford has won eight of his last 10 starts, while surrendering two or fewer goals in all but one of those outings.

Crawford stopped 43 of the 44 shots he faced in Monday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes.

Crawford was fantastic in this one as the shots kept coming all night, but the 30-year-old was up to the task. It was a nice way to make up for Saturday's four-goal dud as he's now surrendered two or fewer goals in seven of his last eight starts. Unsurprisingly, Crawford has gone 7-1-1 in that span and has brought his rate stats back to elite levels.

Crawford is slated to start Monday's game against the Hurricanes, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Crawford, who will be making his 50th start of the season for the Hawks, will look to bounce back Monday after his three-game win streak was snapped by Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Stars. Prior to that, Crawford had limited opponents to just eight goals in his previous seven turns in net.

Crawford gave up four goals on 29 shots in Saturday's loss to the Stars.

A rare off night for Crawford, who had given up just five goals in his last four games. The 30-year-old falls to 29-15-5 on the season with a .924 save percentage and 2.21 GAA. He's been a monster of late, so just chalk this up as a bad outing and move on. He's so good that he needs to be in your lineup every game.
