The Chicago Blackhawks survived to play another day, and it’s all because of goalie Corey Crawford.
You probably saw the numbers by now – Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford stopped 48 of 49 shots from the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Yes, that Corey Crawford, the one who is often seen as one of Chicago’s most underappreciated athletes.
Simply put, the Hawks would be booking tee times at social-distance compliant golf courses right now if not for Crawford. Despite giving up a few soft goals throughout the first three games, he’s been excellent all series, and he’s been strong throughout the Hawks’ time in the Edmonton playoff bubble.
