On Monday, Blackhawks netminder was named the NHL’s #1 Star of the Week for the week ending Dec. 13.
From the release:
Crawford went 3-0-0 with a 0.33 goals-against average, .989 save percentage and two shutouts to help the Blackhawks (17-10-4, 38 points) climb into second place in the Central Division. He stopped 36 of 37 shots in a 4-1 win over the Nashville Predators Dec. 8. Crawford then posted a pair of shutouts, making 25 saves in a 2-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets Dec. 11 and 30 saves in a 4-0 triumph over the Vancouver Canucks Dec. 13. In doing so, Crawford earned consecutive shutouts for the third time in his career and second time this season (also Oct. 24 vs. TBL: 21 SV and Oct. 26 vs. ANA: 39 SV). The 30-year-old Montreal native, who shares the League lead with four shutouts in 2015-16, owns a 15-7-2 record in 24 appearances (2.23 GAA, .924 SV%), including four straight wins.
