We highlighted Chicago’s worrisome goaltending situation yesterday on PHT. Today, we’ll link you to a story about Corey Crawford and the steps he’s taking to get his game back together.

According to, Crawford has been working closely with goaltending coach Stephane Waite and watching video to see if there’s anything he can pick up.

“I don’t feel my game has been as strong consistently as it could be,” he said. “So we’re just trying to find ways, looking at video, doing anything we can to just fix those little things that need to be adjusted.”

Crawford got the hook Tuesday after surrendering four goals on 21 shots to the Coyotes. He’ll get the start tonight against the Islanders at the United Center. Perhaps a new month will bring better results. His save percentage in November was .886.

    He will be facing Al Montoya whose save % and GAA are among the NHL’s best. Al is also returning home. A win tonight would give the NYI 3 straight and set the right tone for opening the month of December which will be critical if they are to get back in the mix.

    Same old hawks talk big but always an excuse why don’t they admit that one cup in many years is all that they will get
