Blackhawks Vs. Coyotes, Game 5: Corey Crawford Will Start In Goal For Chicago

After some speculation, it's been reported that Corey Crawford will again get the nod in net when the Chicago Blackhawks play the Phoenix Coyotes in Game 5 of the teams' opening round series in the 2012 NHL playoffs.

Crawford has started every game of the series thus far for Chicago. He's played well throughout the series, but let in game-winning goals in overtime during Game 3 and Game 4 that were perceived as "soft". Ray Emery started 27 games for the Blackhaws during the regular season.

The 'Hawks enter Game 5 down 3-1, and need a victory to stave off elimination.
