Chicago Blackhawks Hockey - The Chicago Blackhawks’ Corey Crawford was named the third star of the week by NHL.com for the week ending on January 19th.
“Crawford went 2-0-1 with a 2.22 goals-against average and .916 save percentage to help the Blackhawks (32-8-11, 75 points) remain in first place in the Central Division.”
Corey Crawford had a solid game in an OT loss to Colorado (23 saves) but obviously his two best games of the week came over the weekend beating the best team (points-wise) the Anaheim Ducks and then beating one of the best teams in the East, the Boston Bruins.
This week could be cruicial in Crawford getting his confidence back after struggling to get wins after returning from his injury.
