Corey Crawford had his best game so far this season in St. Louis Wednesday night in the Hawks 3-2 loss. Crawford stopped 31-34 shots that the Blues fired at him with 2 of the Blues goals almost unstoppable including the game winner with less than 22 seconds left in the game when the Blues came down on a 3-1 and Alexander Steen didn’t make a mistake.
This had to be Crawford’s best save of the night and this was with less than 6 minutes left in the contest to preserve a 2-2 game.
When the game ended there was some scuttlebutt about blaming Crawford for the loss, but let’s not make any mistake about it, Crawford after struggling a bit in the first two games came up big especially in a rare game when the opposition out shot the Blackhawks 34-28. Crawford cannot be blamed for giving up a 3 on 1 in the final seconds. It was good to see Crawford start getting back into last season form!
