Chicago Blackhawks goaltenders Corey Crawford and Ray Emery enjoyed some fruit of their labors this season as they captured the William M. Jennings Trophy on Sunday night. The award is given to the goalies on the NHL team that allowed the fewest goals during the 2013 regular season. The duo yielded a league-low 102 goals this season. "It's a huge accomplishment," Crawford said. "It's a team effort." Crawford and Emery split time in goal for the Hawks and finished the season by allowing two fewer goals that the Ottawa Senators. The Senators gave up two goals in a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Sunday night. The first allowed goal gave the Hawks netminders the trophy. It is the fourth time the Hawks have won the Jennings--with Eddie Belfour securing it in 1990-91, '92-93 and '94-95, Crawford went 19-5-5 this season with a 1.94 goals-against average .926 save percentage. Emery set an NHL record by winning his first 12 decisions of the season and finished 17-1-0 and a 1.94 goals-against and .922 save percentage.
