When Erik Gustafsson was sent back to Rockford in mid-November, he knew he was in good standing with the Blackhawks.
Corey Crawford’s focus wasn’t where it needed to be earlier this season.
The Blackhawks got their necessary rebound victory on Friday night. They didn’t need a lot of goals, but the two they did get came from their power play.
Corey Crawford was an observer for the Blackhawks’ game in Nashville on Thursday night and his synopsis was accurate.
“Can’t get worse than that,” he said.
The names on the score sheet were different than usual, and that’s a good thing.
