Corey Crawford stops Fabbri, Tarasenko as Hawks knot Game 7

The St. Louis Blues’ early 2-0 lead was erased by the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 7. And Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford is doing his best to try to not allow St. Louis to score again. 

Midway though the second period, Crawford made several incredible saves shortly after the Blackhawks tied the game on an Andrew Shaw power play goal.

The best stop was when he stuffed St. Louis forward Robby Fabbri at the end of a sequence. The puck came across to Fabbri wide open in front of the Chicago net. He fired a shot and Crawford got a blocker on it to keep the game tied at 2-2.

With 5:43 left in the second, Crawford made a gorgeous glove save on Blues sniper Vladimir Tarasenko.

The Blackhawks stormed out at the start of the second period, firing nine shots on goal to the Blues’ three by midway through the frame. Interestingly, Tarasenko hasn’t played much this game. His ice-time was a sensitive topic after the Blues’ Game 6 loss, especially after he appeared to be at odds with coach Ken Hitchcock.

Marian Hossa scored for Chicago with 1:30 left in the first to help steal back some momentum for the Blackhawks and put the game at 2-1. Jori Lehtera scored one minute into the game to make it 1-0, then Colton Parayko fired a blast at the 13:43 mark of the first to put it at 2-0.
