Blackhawks Vs. Coyotes: G Cory Crawford May Not Start Game 5

So far in the playoffs, Crawford has managed a .900 save percentage with an average of 2.64 goal against per game. During the 2011-12 regular season, Crawford played in 57 games and sported a .903 save percentage and a 2.72 goals against average.

The Blackhawks' backup goalie, Ray Emery, played in 34 games, briefly taking over as the starter, and finished the year with a .900 save percentage and 2.81 goals against average.
