The Chicago Blackhawks lost but their goaltender, Corey Crawford, deserves more respect.
The Chicago Blackhawks lost their game to the Edmonton Oilers. They were beaten by a team that looked faster, stronger, and more ready to play from the first drop of the puck. Blackhawks Twitter is ripping on Corey Crawford for his play and saying things about him that are very misinformed. He is not a bad goaltender now and he deserves way more respect than he is being given. He didn’t have his all-time best game but he certainly wasn’t the biggest problem.
He mishandled the puck behind the net when it was 4-3 Oilers and James Neal took advantage to make it 5-3. Well, guess what, that happens to the best goalies in the world at times and there is nothing you can do about it. It was a mistake but one that he has more than made up for during his time with the Chicago Blackhawks.
