Corey Crawford looked solid, and that might not be the biggest takeaway in the world, but I do think his development to being game ready is important for the Chicago Blackhawks to have any type of a chance against the Oilers.

Corey Crawford has stolen series for us in the past, and there is no reason why he can not do it again. Crawford really looked up to speed even though this might be his first full week to hockey since rejoining the team.

Crawford made 11 saves in the first period and a half before switching with Malcolm Subban midway through the second period. In fact, both goalies looked pretty solid when it came to stopping the puck.

Subban looks like a solid goalie should the Blackhawks need him sometime in the play-ins, but our money is on Crawford getting the nod against Edmonton on Saturday.
