From ESPN's article on 10 players with high expectations this season

Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks
The fears of all Chicago fans were realized in the first round against Phoenix when, in spite of outplaying the Coyotes for long stretches of time, the Blackhawks' goaltending broke down and they were ousted in six games -- the second straight first-round departure since winning the Cup in 2010. The blame can't all be laid at Crawford's skates, but two questionable overtime goals that really sunk Chicago highlighted the team's dilemma: Is Crawford the kind of goaltender who can be counted on in the clutch? That question won't be answered early in the season, but Crawford can help his case immensely by turning in consistent, quality starts from the get-go. If not, look for Stan Bowman to search for goaltending help by the trade deadline.

I think I forgot about those OT goals. Those were so awful. We deserved better than a 4-2 loss in that series.
