Crawford turned aside 28 of 32 shots as his team dropped a 5-2 decision to St. Louis
Crawford was due for a tough night after his strong start to this season. Even with that, he was sharp against the power play, stopping St. Louis five times with the man advantage. Owners shouldn't worry about this one.
Crawford will guard the cage in Wednesday's road game against the Blues, Eric Lear of Blackhawks TV reports.
Crawford has been exceptional this season. The 32-year-old netminder currently leads the league in GAA (1.39) and save percentage (.960), and he's compiled a 4-1-0 record over five appearances. He'll look to stay hot in a road matchup with a St. Louis team that's averaging 2.83 goals per game this season, 17th in the NHL.
Crawford had 37 saves for Chicago, and the Blackhawks beat the Predators 2-1 on Saturday night in their first meeting since last year's playoffs.
It's been a great start for Crawford, who has stood tall (.960 save percentage) while facing 34.8 shots per game in his five starts.
Crawford allowed a single goal on 38 shots in a 2-1 overtime victory against the Predators on Saturday.
After allowing three goals in a loss to Minnesota, this was a bounce-back outing from Crawford. The lone goal he yielded Saturday came on the power play, as the veteran stopped all 31 shots he faced at even strength. Crawford is now 4-1 with a .960 save percentage and 1.39 GAA through his first five starts of the season. Those are rock-solid numbers in all fantasy settings.
Crawford will guard the cage in Saturday's home game against the Predators.
Crawford surrendered three goals on 32 shots en route to his first loss of the campaign Thursday against Minnesota, but that was a minor hiccup in what has otherwise been an exceptional start to the season for the veteran backstop. Prior to Thursday's defeat, Crawford posted a superb 1.00 GAA and .971 save percentage while racking up three straight victories out of the gate. He'll look to pick up his fourth win of 2017-18 in a tough home matchup against a Predators squad that has potted 10 goals over its past two games.
