LOS ANGELES (AP) - Corey Crawford has shrugged off criticism for his entire career with the Blackhawks, so one bad playoff game isn't about to bother the Chicago goalie.
Jonathan Quick can relate to Crawford's challenge after the Blackhawks allowed six goals in a series-evening loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Game 3 in the Western Conference finals is Saturday night at Staples Center.
Quick and the Kings were shredded for 17 goals in the first three games of their playoff run, but they've bounced back impressively.
Crawford's five goals allowed in Game 2 - all in the last 22 minutes - matched his worst total of the season. But the Blackhawks know their collapse wasn't their goalie's fault.
They're determined to improve against Quick, whose reputation for playoff moxie grows with every round.
