Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford doesn’t look back when it comes to his play.

He doesn’t compare what he did last season or even last week to what he’s doing now. It’s only about the present and future to him.

“It’s always about what’s next, trying to get better as a goaltender,” Crawford said after practice at Johnny’s IceHouse West on Tuesday. “Every day I get on the ice, I try to get better. Last year is last year. I don’t want to compare anything. I’m just worried about my results, how I’m playing now and just feed off that.”

While Crawford isn’t comparing results, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville has done just that. And from what Quenneville has noticed, Crawford has been a more consistent goaltender over the last month since returning from a lower-body injury than he was over the season’s first 2 ½ months.
