"That's too many. " Corey Crawford offers no excuses for the L.A. Kings getting the best of the Blackhawks in Game 2 at the United Center.

Quietly - and to the surprise of some - Corey Crawford is becoming one of the NHL's best goaltenders. "As a team we want to keep raising our level of play as the stage gets bigger and bigger, but I think if there's anyone that's doing that, it's Crow," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said after Crawford made 25 saves in Game 1.

5-0. That's Australian Blackhawks fan Paul Wilkins' record when he attends games at the United Center. Hard to argue with that success. Same goes for just about everything Hawks related Sunday.

Come on, Brent Seabrook . You saw how the Wild broke your team's back with a late power-play goal in Game 4, and still you go and take a silly tripping penalty at center ice 29 seconds into the game.
