Few players will be scrutinized more in the coming days with the postseason on the horizon than Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford.

Some will say he's the reason why the Hawks can't win the Stanley Cup. All season, Crawford has had to deal with questions about his play and his confidence in his up-and-down sophomore campaign.

That didn't change when the regular season concluded Saturday in Detroit, but maybe it should after Crawford turned away three Red Wings in a shootout for a 3-2 victory at Joe Louis Arena.

"I haven't questioned my confidence all year," said Crawford, who hit 30 wins for the second consecutive season. "I'm really confident. No matter what has happened, I've been able to stay pretty even-keel. Now, whatever has happened in the regular season, we've got to look forward to the playoffs."
