Crawford, Price awarded William Jennings Trophy

by NHL Public Relations / NHL.com

Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks and Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens won the William M. Jennings Trophy, presented "to the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it."

The Blackhawks and Canadiens finished the regular season tied with a League-low 189 goals allowed, and Crawford and Price saw the most action for their respective teams. This marks the first time that goaltenders on two teams claimed the Jennings Trophy since 2002-03, when New Jersey's Martin Brodeur and Philadelphia's Roman Cechmanek and Robert Esche captured Jennings honors after the Devils and Flyers tied for the League's lowest goals-against total. Crawford captured the Jennings Trophy for the second time in three seasons (also 2012- 13), posting a 32-20-5 record with a 2.27 goals-against average, .924 save percentage and two shutouts in 57 appearances. He allowed two goals or fewer in each of his final four starts of the regular season from April 2-9.

Price, who won his first career Jennings Trophy, set a franchise record for victories by going 44-16-6, surpassing the previous mark of 42 achieved twice by Jacques Plante (1955-56 and 1961-62) and once by Ken Dryden (1975-76). He led the NHL in wins, goals-against average (1.96) and save percentage (.933), and shared second place in shutouts (nine).
