All Corey Crawford could do was watch from the bench and work hard in practice as veteran Ray Emery took over in goal the last two games. Crawford, though, is keeping a positive attitude.

"I'm fine," Crawford said. "I'll just be hungry for the next time I get into the net."

There's no telling exactly when that will be with Emery playing so well for the Hawks, including a stellar 35-save performance in a 3-2 overtime victory Sunday against the San Jose Sharks.

Crawford, still considered the No. 1 goalie, said he hasn't been working against any specific shot or situation at practice with goalie coach Stephane Waite.
