Blackhawks vs. Sharks: Corey Crawford drops puck into own net

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

Squeeze the glove, Crawford.

I'm no hockey expert, but I've played baseball. The basic concept of catching a baseball is to make sure you squeeze your glove once it's in your mitt so it doesn't fall out. I feel like the same concept applies to hockey goalies.

Case in point: Corey Crawford. The Chicago Blackhawks goaltender caught a sizzling shot in the second period, only to let it slip out and trickle over the line for a goal.

I'm going to rule that an E5. On the bright side, that's the only goal the Sharks have scored. San Jose trails, 2-1, in the second period.
