CHICAGO – Corey Crawford is healthy once again for the Chicago Blackhawks and will get the start on Sunday night at United Center against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Ray Emery started three straight games while Crawford sat out with an upper-body injury and also drew the start in Friday night's NHL-record setting 2-1 victory against the San Jose Sharks – which pushed Chicago's unprecedented start to 17 straight games with at least one point earned.

Emery has the hot hand, but Crawford was also outstanding before getting hurt – posting a line of 7-0-0 with a 1.65 goals-against average and .935 save percentage.
"Corey was going very well there, too, prior to getting injured, so it's good to have both guys back," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “We've got back-to-back games. We're just looking at [Sunday's] game. It's good to have Corey back and Ray did an excellent job, like our goaltending has all year."
