Crawford will backup Scott Darling on Friday against Tampa Bay as part of a back-to-back scenario, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Crawford came off one of his best recent outings on Thursday with a 3-0 shutout of Florida, stopping 20 shots on goal. He probably will give way a few more starts before the playoffs since his recent woes might have been attributed to being overworked. Crawford is still the number one goalie and could be back in goal on Monday against Carolina. Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville could give Darling another start against the woeful Hurricanes, but Crawford is a good bet to start.

He still sports solid numbers with a 23-14-4 record to go along with a 2.36 GAA and .918 save percentage, but it would be nice to see more steady production out of the 30-year-old.
