After another disastrous start from Corey Crawford, who allowed six goals on 35 shots in a Game 2 loss to the Predators, our Blackhawks Postgame Live crew debated who Joel Quenneville should start in net when the series returns to Chicago for Game 3 on Sunday.

Joel Quenneville said after the game that he's undecided on whether it will be Crawford or Scott Darling, who stopped all 42 shots in a Game 1, double-overtime victory on Wednesday.

Still, our Postgame Live crew had different takes on what Quenneville will eventually decide.

Said Steve Konroyd: "I think it's gonna be Scott Darling. I mean, how could it not really (be)? Because let's throw away the fact that Corey did not have a good third period here tonight. Scott Darling, not only did he win that game last game when he came in after the first period, but he did play the Nashville Predators once early in his career and he allowed one goal on 33 shots. So he has now faced 75 Nashville shots, he stopped 74 of them. I think it's a no-brainer."

Countered Jamal Mayers: "I still think he's going to go with Corey Crawford. I think that his leash will be much shorter but on home ice, what this guy has done and the body of work, honestly I think it'll take him one practice to get his game back in order. He works really hard as far as with (goaltending coach Jimmy) Waite and getting his things back in order. They'll watch the video. I think he's going to go back to Corey."
