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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
