Crawford almost certainly would have been the clear No. 1 option heading into the club's play-in clash with Edmonton, however, his issue will no doubt raise red flags for fantasy players.

Crawford made 38 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over Florida on Saturday night.
It was a vintage Crawford night -- he turned back time to his dominating younger self. And he almost had the win in regulation. The kitties started attacking hard in the third and ultimately knotted the game at the 18:32 mark. Crawford is the de facto number one now that Robin Lehner is gone, but don't expect him to get all the games.
