Crawford will be between the pipes in Wednesday's game against the Sharks, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Crawford was awful in his last outing, allowing five goals on just 19 shots en route to a 6-3 loss to Vancouver on Saturday. It was the first loss he's suffered in his last three starts, however, so his lackluster performance was likely an anomaly rather than a sign of things to come. On Wednesday he'll take on a red-hot Sharks club that has won six games straight, all on the road.
Crawford gave up five goals on 19 shots in Saturday's loss to the Canucks. Crawford fell victim to the Sedin twins, who combined for nine points in the game.

Forget about Saturday and keep him rolling.

Crawford will be between the pipes in Wednesday's game against the Oilers, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
