Crawford gets shutdown by Canes

Corey Crawford experienced another shutout Wednesday, but on the wrong side as the Chicago Blackhawks went down 3-0 to the Carolina Hurricanes. Crawford is expected to be assigned, again, to the Rockford IceHogs when Nikolai Khabibulin returns to the line-up or the Blackhawks end their season. However there is no sign of when Khabibulin will return. The Hawks final game of the year will probably be April 6th against the Detroit Red Wings. The IceHogs have four games to play, not including likely playoff action, after April 6.

Crawford shutout the Anaheim Ducks in his first NHL start, and stopped 44 shots on goal in a 3-1 loss against the Detroit Red Wings. The IceHogs are 4-4 since the Blackhawks recalled Crawford February 27.
