Crawford getting Tuesday's start

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville will come right back with Corey Crawford as his goalie for Tuesday's key game with Nashville at the United Center. Quenneville, who pulled Crawford in the second period of Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Predators, said he wasn't concerned about his No. 1 goalie's play or confidence. “He's fine,” Quenneville said Monday after practice. “I think everybody goes through, you know, you let a funny one in over time, but you have to move past it and learn from it and put it in the back of your mind.” One of the goals Crawford allowed at Nashville was Kevin's Klein's shot from center ice that took a sideways bounce and went into the net, snapping a 1-1 tie. Crawford has 18 wins but a lowly .902 save percentage and 2.88 goals-against average. “I'm more worried about wins right now,” Crawford said. “Obviously my stats aren't as good as I'd want them to be, but the only way to turn that around is focus on the next shot and focus on winning games.” With Quenneville saying Jonathan Toews would miss Tuesday's game with a suspected left arm injury, here were the forward lines at practice Monday: Stalberg – Bolland – Kane Shaw – Kruger – Hossa Brunette – Frolik – Hayes Bickell – Mayers - Smith
