Veteran Ray Emery was slated to make his fourth start of the season Friday night against the San Jose Sharks, and Henrik Karlsson was set to back him after he was promoted from Rockford in the American Hockey League.
Crawford had 31 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to Anaheim on Tuesday. He is 7-0-3 on the season with a 1.65 goals-against average.
Karlsson has appeared in 26 career NHL games, all with Calgary over the past two seasons. He has a 2.79 goals-against average.
[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
