Crawford stopped 22 of the 24 shots he faced in Sunday's blowout win over the Stars.
While it wasn't an overly busy night, Crawford still played his part, picking up his third win in four games. He is now 7-4-1 on the season with an impressive .929 save percentage and 1.88 GAA. If the Blackhawks can keep scoring like they did Sunday, the wins will come even easier for Crawford. Use him well.

Crawford will draw the start in goal Sunday against the Stars, NHL.com's Brian Hedger reports.
Despite taking the loss Friday against the Red Wings, Crawford stopped a respectable 33 of 36 shots to continue his strong play in the net this season. A slow-starting Blackhawks offense has staked him to just a so-so 6-4-1 record, but eventually, the wins should start to come in droves for Crawford.

Crawford turned aside 33 of 36 shots but ending up with the loss as the Blackhawks fell 4-1 to the Red Wings. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Tough luck for "Crow", as a lack of Blackhawk offense and an insane 20-shot barrage (two goals) by the Wings in the second period dropped his record to 6-4-1 this year. Crawford has been above average by his standards so far, posting a 1.87 GAA and a .930 save percentage (his career marks are 2.33 and .915), which is somewhat ironic as the normally high-scoring Hawks sit 23rd overall in league scoring with 2.47 goals per game. One figures that Chicago will find a way to put the puck in the net with more regularity, especially when Patrick Sharp (knee) returns, so if Crawford can keep up his strong play, he could be in for one of his biggest fantasy seasons yet.

Crawford will be in the crease Friday against the Red Wings, CSNChicago.com's Tracey Myers reports.
The Blackhawks figure to rest Crawford at some point during the upcoming week when the team hits the road for its annual circus trip, but he'll be in the net for his seventh consecutive turn Friday night. He's been spectacular for his first six outings in November, going 3-3 with a 1.83 GAA and .934 save percentage.

Crawford will start in net Tuesday against the Lightning, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Crawford has been stellar when healthy this year, and figures to continue to get the vast majority of the starts moving forward. If the Hawks can start to score like they have over the past couple years, look for Crawford to start stringing together a bunch of wins.

Crawford stopped 32 of 34 shots in Sunday's win over San Jose.
Crawford is now 5-3-1 this season with an impressive .932 save percentage and 1.75 GAA. Now that the Blackhawks appear to have gotten their offense back on track, more wins should be on the way for Crawford. The 29-year-old workhorse has been one of the league's best this season.

Crawford will be in the crease Sunday against the Sharks, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Crawford will catch the Sharks on the second game of a back-to-back, which could make the opposition less intimidating than normal. In any event, Crawford has thrived this season no matter the opponent or the circumstance. He's gone 4-3-1 with a 1.72 GAA and .930 save percentage over eight starts this season.

Crawford allowed three goals on 24 shots in Friday's loss to the visiting Capitals. He's now 4-3-1 on the season.
The Blackhawks were cruising with a 2-0 lead until Washington exploded for three goals in the last five minutes of the second period. It didn't help that Braden Holtby basically stood on his head in the opposing net with 38 saves, but that'll hardly squash the frustrations of Crawford's owners after he coughed up the lead so quickly. His 1.72 GAA and .930 save percentage this year should help ease the pain, but four wins to this point on an elite offensive team like Chicago hasn't quite cut it for those who count on "Crow" as their No. 1.
