Corey Crawford G CHI 21 hours ago

Crawford denied 30 of 32 shot attempts to claim the Game 6 win Wednesday over the Ducks.

Crawford's final line would have looked even better if not for the Ducks' Clayton Stoner tallying a controversial third-period goal, when the Blackhawks goalie appeared to be interfered with by Jakob Silfverberg as he tried to stop Stoner's shot. Nonetheless, Crawford turned in a clutch performance to extend the series, and will certainly be back in the net Saturday with a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals on the line.

Crawford allowed five goals on 28 shots in Monday's Game 5, overtime loss to the Ducks.

Crawford struggled early in this one as he allowed three goals in the opening frame, once again fueling speculation that coach Joel Quenneville might elect to turn to Scott Darling. He kept the starter in though, and his mates in front of him battled back with two goals in the final minutes to force it to overtime before Crawford allowed a rebound goal just 45 seconds into the extra frame. Crawford has gone through rough stretches lately in this series, but he figures to be back in net in Wednesday's must-win Game 6.

Crawford will be in the net for Monday's Game 5 in Anaheim, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

If not for Crawford's stellar play in the two games in the series that went to overtime, the Blackhawks' postseason likely would have come to a conclusion. In the four-game series, Crawford has notched a .934 save percentage to prop up the Blackhawks' top four defenders, who have been forced to log heavy minutes.

Crawford denied 47 of 51 shots as the Blackhawks pulled out a 5-4 double-overtime victory over the Ducks in Saturday's Game 4.

Crawford looked like he would cruise to a fairly comfortable victory when Brent Seabrook's goal gave the team a 3-1 cushion with a little over 12 minutes remaining in the match, but that wouldn't be the case. The Ducks then responded with three unanswered goals in 37 seconds to take the lead, quieting the rapid United Center crowd. Instead of pulling the goalie in favor of Scott Darling, coach Joel Quenneville stuck with Crawford, and then watched as he made several key saves while the Blackhawks sent the game to overtime. He would continue to shine in the extra 25:37 of action, stopping all 21 shots he faced in that span before Antoine Vermette notched the game-winner. Despite the bumpy outing, look for Crawford to be back in the crease for Monday's Game 5 in Anaheim.

Crawford allowed just two goals on 27 shots, but took the loss in Thursday's Game 3 against Anaheim.

Frederik Andersen was one better on the other end, with Simon Despres' late-second-period goal against Crawford holding up as the winner. After Crawford put up a bit of a clunker in Game 1, he's been terrifically sharp in the last two games, but the 'Hawks still face a 2-1 series deficit heading into Game 4 in Chicago.

Ccawford turned aside 60 of 62 shots in Tuesday's triple-overtime Game 2 win over the Ducks.

Just another spectacular outing for Crawford, who continues to deliver outstanding play in net for Chicago. It took the equivalent of nearly two games, but he and the 'Hawks have evened the series at 1-1 as it heads back to Chicago.

Crawford will be in the net for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Ducks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Crawford had his worst game Sunday since taking back the top goalie gig from Scott Darling late in the first-round series win over the Predators. He gave up three goals on 26 shot attempts, but the steady play that preceded his Game 1 outing will prompt coach Joel Quenneville to stick with him. Crawford will have a slight tweak on defense in front of him, as Kyle Cumiskey is expected to draw in for David Rundblad on a pairing with Johnny Oduya.

Crawford allowed three goals on 26 shots in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Ducks.

Not the greatest start to Round 3 for Crawford, who was outdueled by Ducks' netminder Frederik Andersen. While it marked the second straight outing Crawford has given up three goals, it was just his first loss in six games. Crawford has taken back over the Chicago crease, so if the Hawks hope to get past the Ducks and the surging Andersen, Crawford will need to be at his very best.
