Corey Crawford pitched his sixth shutout of the season Sunday against the Senators, and it's the subject of this week's Blackhawks Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland and NW Indiana Honda dealers.
Blackhawks Insider Tracey Myers discussed why the Blackhawks goaltender and defense have improved this month.

"The Blackhawks, any potential rebounds, they're swatting them out of the way, they're clearing lanes for him. They're getting any pucks out of the way so those second, third chances just aren't there for these other teams. And as far as Crawford's concerned, he talked a couple weeks ago about he had this little time during the season which he was complacent," Myers said. "You're not seeing that anymore. I know he gave up quite a few goals in the Arizona game but for the most part he has been very good as he talked about, this was his 300th game tonight and one of the big things he's learned about is getting rid of any goals you do allow, get them out of your mind."
