Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford will start a brawl if you get in his crease

New, comment

GOALIE FIGHT.

We've seen goalies fight in the playoffs before. But it's usually with other goalies, and they rarely instigate the shoving matches in the first place.

So here comes Corey Crawford. The Chicago Blackhawks goalie apparently had enough of the St. Louis Blues crowding his crease in Game 3. When Blues forward Robby Fabbri careened into Crawford at the end of a scoring play, Crawford abandoned his net and went hunting.

That started a massive scrum, including Vladimir Tarasenko and Jonathan Toews getting into it.

Somehow the Blackhawks ended up with a power play out of the mess. Maybe Corey Crawford is a genius.
