There are games when Corey Crawford tests the patience of the Chicago Blackhawks and just about everyone rooting for them.
Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against St. Louis because of a lower-body injury.
Corey Crawford started every single playoff game when the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup last year. Detroit had Jimmy Howard in goal, Jonathan Quick was in net for Los Angeles, Boston had Tuukka Rask, and Crawford beat each one of them.
That’s all the time the Chicago Blackhawks needed to rally and win the Stanley Cup with a 3-2 victory over the Bruins on Monday night.
In an almost improbable comeback, the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins 3-2 for their second Stanley Cup title since 2010.
When the Bruins shoot, they’re aiming for Corey Crawford’s glove side.
Brent Seabrook’s goal 9:51 into overtime lifted the Chicago Blackhawks to a wild 6-5 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night and tied the Stanley Cup finals through four games.
The Blackhawks are likely going to get by the Wild without much more trouble the rest of the way. However, Quenneville & Co. now understand that Crawford can make the key save when the game is on the line.
