3. The Chicago BlackhawksCorey Crawford/Antti Raanta: The Blackhawks boast the only Stanley Cup winning goalie in the division in Crawford. Crawford seems to raise his play when it comes to the playoffs for the Blackhawks. During the regular season Crawford plays like a middle of the road NHL goal tender. Crawford for his career is 115-59 with a .914 save percentage and 2.36 goals against average. In the playoffs his save percentage goes up to .920 save percentage and 2.21 goals against average.

Raanta made his NHL debut last season. Raanta played well when he played consistently. When he became more of a backup, his numbers started to struggle. Raanta went 13-5 with a .897 save percentage and 2.71 goals against average.

The Blackhawks are solid at goalie but what if an injury occurs?
