Goaltender Corey Crawford played out of his mind against Vancouver in the first round of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs, even though Chicago failed to to win the series.
Last season, Crawford played well during the season, but when Chicago faced Phoenix in the first round of the playoffs, he didn't appear to play up to his potential. It was not all Crawford's fault, but there were easy goals that went by him when his team needed him the most.
Crawford has looked solid so far this season, playing lights out against St. Louis last night as he turned down tough shots in the final minutes of the game.
He's only given up two goals in each of his two starts this season, and currently has a save percentage of .927.
If Crawford plays with this type of intensity and continues to be cool in the clutch, this Blackhawks team could become even more dangerous.
