Crawford stopped 34 shots in a 6-2 win over San Jose on Wednesday. Crawford has been locked in as of late, holding his opponents to two goals in six of his last seven starts and posting a save percentage of .920 or better in eight of his last 10. The 35-year-old has enjoyed a resurgent season with a .917 save percentage in 40 appearances. He draws another favorable matchup Friday at home against Ottawa.
Crawford is slated to start between the pipes in Wednesday's home game versus the Sharks, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports. Crawford has been sharp recently, maintaining a 2.10 GAA and .922 save percentage through his last two appearances, but he's posted a highly disappointing 0-2-0 record over that span due to insufficient goal support. The veteran backstop will try to get back in the win column in a favorable home matchup with a struggling San Jose team that's 12-18-3 on the road this year.
Crawford allowed two goals on 26 shots in Sunday's 2-0 loss to St. Louis. Crawford allowed a pair of even-strength goals in this one, and his team was unable to solve Jake Allen, who carded his second shutout against the Blackhawks this season. Having just completed his ninth consecutive start, Crawford may be in line for a rest Wednesday when Chicago hosts the Sharks.
Crawford will tend the home twine in Sunday's game versus St. Louis, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports. The 35-year-old will make his ninth consecutive start Sunday. Crawford has been outstanding over his past eight starts, going 5-3-0 along with a 2.49 GAA and .928 save percentage over that span. It will be a difficult test for Crawford and the Blackhawks, as the Blues sit atop the Western Conference with 90 points, and are 8-2-0 in their past 10 games.
Crawford gave up two goals on 25 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Red Wings. Crawford's four-game winning streak came to a surprising end at the hands of the league's worst team. The 35-year-old goalie slipped to 15-19-3 with a 2.81 GAA and a .916 save percentage in 38 contests this year. He's started every game since the Blackhawks flipped Robin Lehner to Vegas in exchange for Malcolm Subban at the trade deadline. Expect Crawford to continue to see the majority of the starts in the final few weeks of the season.
