EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – As he was growing up, Corey Crawford had a few goaltending idols. One of them will be officially calling it a career later this week.
The mood was fairly jovial on Wednesday night, a few minutes after the Blackhawks took a 3-2 shootout victory from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Antti Raanta’s last United Center start was a strong one, a 31-stop shutout against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Dec. 21.
The Blackhawks got off to a fast start Sunday night and it rewarded them nicely in their 4-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.
