The Chicago Blackhawks are trying to get back tot eh Stanley Cup this year and defend their crown, but they’re learning very quickly that they must take baby steps even if they are the defending champions. The St. Louis Blues are looking to make sure they don’t get prematurely bounced in the postseason again and they’re fighting to e very end of things to wrestle away Game 1 from Chicago.
But no matter who wins the game, the fact of the matter is net minding will determine this series and so far Corey Crawford has been lights out. Despite giving up a late third period goal that tied the game, he has been making epic saves all night long and this glove save is just one of many Crawford highlights through just one game.
Crawford carried the Hawks last year and he’s looking like he may be able to do so again this year.
