Hope Q keeps Kane/Toews together but I don't expect it

If he falters down stretch here then you give nod to Crawford

I think they are still seeing how he plays over multiple games. It's clear that he has a shot at it but if he has another stinker, he is probably done. If he has another good one, they'll put him in again and see if he can keep it up.

Emery again? Could he really overtake Crawford in the end? Wanted to make a thread about that with the main reason that both have identical numbers but Emery has been to the Finals before and is much more calm

4th game in 6 nights. Hope they are not tired. Though they may get that way with the way the Mild play. I expect a Hawks victory but understand if they lose.

Hossa has not been the same since he came back and I hope he gets back to scoring. Wish he would just rip one like in the shoot out.

Would love to see Saad having a big night scoring the 1st goal of the game and the GWG and ends with 3 Goals, 1-2 assists and a +4 or something like that. Just that Panthers Fans have nothing more to say why Huberdeau should win any indivdual award this year with his great O only and -10

#Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said goaltender Corey Crawford will get a start this weekend. Look for him Friday vs. Red Wings.

He did falter last game...But since the team we were playing is terrible, he got bailed out.

Last 3 games for Emery:
Ana: 2 goals on 24 shots
Nash(w/out Erat, Borque, Gaustad): 0 goals on 20 shots
Nash(w/out Erat, Borque Gaustad): 3 goals on 22 shots

Total: 5 goals on 66 shots .924 sv%

Crawford last 3 games:
Det: 1 goal on 34 shots
Nash(w/Erat, Borque, Gaustad): 2 goals on 27 shots
Stl: 3 goals on 22 shots

Total: 6 goals on 83 shots .928 sv%


Consensus on here was that Crawford was bad, Emery has been good. Seems kinda strange given he's got nearly identical(slightly better) numbers while playing better teams.

It was more the type of goals Craw was letting in compared to Emery.

And an absolutely ridiculous O-zone start %. Huberdeau is one of the most sheltered players in the league.

Crawford is the better goalie and I have no doubt that will be proven down the stretch. Emery has earned a shot at proving himself though. So far, one good, one bad. He needs another good game and if we are only giving up 20 shots, that means 1 GA or SO. Same goes for Crawford when he plays.

Crawford makes more amazing saves but also allows some real stinkers

Emery cant physically makes some of the saves Crawford can but is generally less prone to horrid goals

It comes down to whether you think the Hawks will be allowing shots in the low 20's without a lot of good scoring chances most of the playoffs. If I knew that was going to happen, yeah, I can see a strong argument for Emery. However, if teams step up and start pushing the play, he isn't going to be able to handle it most games.

Crawford has a higher ceiling than Emery, but a lower floor

The Hawks' goalies have basically identical numbers.

Crawford has been the guy all year, not sure why Q is going away from him. Probably just to give him some rest and then give Crawford the majority of the last 7-8 starts to get him ready for the playoffs.

Exactly, Crawford has been letting in goals that deflate the team, Emery hasn't.

emery also played the depleted version of an already offensively weak team. only real bad goal craw gave up was the one where he waited to long to try to cover and it got poked underneath him. he makes plenty of good saves on a regular basis.

Right. All of this talk about bad goals Crawford lets in has me scratching my head. When did these occur?

It's just the way the two have always been looked at. One, what did he do, the other, what didn't he do.

I like what Qs doing something he should have done last season (as Im been preaching for a while now). FWIW, heres my theory:

This is the litmus test to see how Emery handles playing several games in a row, including back-to-backs. So far hes gone from: Game 1: excellent, Game 2: pretty good, (one bad goal) Game 3: ??????.

Anything ordinary and Crawford will likely get the same treatment starting this weekend. If Emery goes back to excellent, then Q will be thinking hard about the POs, and the question will be, does he go with Emery again on Friday to see if he can do it again or does he start Crawford several games in a row like he has just done with Emery. Its going to be interesting, especially if Emery comes up big tonight. By now he must be feeling that he is close to stealing the # 1 job - hell be feeling the heat, and its been quite a while since he has been in this position. The adrenaline will be flowing.

I agree with everything except last game being pretty good. If that is the standard, Emery would have never even been given this chance and if that is the new standard, he will not fail. Let's call each game as it is. On this team and in this goalie race, that was a bad game. That hurt his chances, not helped.

I think if it was as bad as you say, Crawford would be in tonight. Emery had no chance on the other 2 goals and the one he did let in was, what, the third try with our dman watching. Emery was out of position though. I believe it was Hoss who pointed out that playing Nashville is difficult. Unless you shut them out, your save percentage will look bad. Our goalie will typically go 5 or 10 minutes with no action whatsoever. The Wild will be a different challenge, for the team as well as Emery.
