Corey Crawford gets rewarded for his strong play tonight with a second straight start against the Kings at Staples Center.
Crawford was the different in Friday's 4-1 win at Anaheim that came six days after he won at Vancouver.
"He played well last game and he's coming off a couple wins here so we'll give him a chance with back-to-back games and show a little confidence in him as well," coach Joel Quenneville said following Saturday'smorning skate. "It shows that we think he can be a top goalie in our league. Hopefully he can take advantage of it."
The Hawks are 3-2 on their six-game road trip that concludes tonight.
Winger Fernando Pisano won't be in the lineup against the Kings because of an upper body injury. John Scott likely will replace Pisani, moving up from defense.
