Crawford in for Blackhawks

Corey Crawford will start in goal Sunday for the Chicago Blackhawks against the Detroit Red Wings (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, NHLN-CA).

It will be Crawford's first start since Feb. 28, when he left that game after one period with what the team called an upper-body injury.

Crawford is 9-0-3 in 12 games, with a League-leading 1.46 goals-against average. He's also second with a .946 save percentage.

And while Blackhawks center Dave Bolland will sit out Sunday -- the fifth straight game he's missed, due to an upper-body injury -- he is expected back in the lineup for Tuesday's home game against the Minnesota Wild.

In 16 games this season, Bolland has five goals and two assists.
