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

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
