CHICAGO — For two days, Chicago was in a panic about Corey Crawford. After Saturday night’s performance, the city likely slept a lot easier.
After allowing five goals, all on his glove side, in Chicago’s 6-5 victory in Game 4 on Wednesday night, Crawford was the target of a lot of criticism. But Crawford returned to form in Saturday’s 3-1 win, making 24 saves, including a crucial stop on a rebound opportunity from Jaromir Jagr with just over two minutes to go.
It was a very strong performance, one that more closely resembled the goalie who had posted a 1.86 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage heading into Game 5. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
