Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Friday he's considering pulling starting goaltender Corey Crawford in favor of Ray Emery for Game 5 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Phoenix Coyotes.
"We're talking about that," said Quenneville, who usually announces his starting goaltender the day before the game. "Don't foresee any announcements."
For the second consecutive game, Crawford allowed what some considered a soft goal in overtime as the Coyotes took a 3-1 series lead Thursday.
Game 5 is Saturday in Phoenix.
"I have no clue," Crawford said when asked how Mikkel Boedker's shot went in. "Once I see the replay, I'll figure out how that went in."
Crawford has a 2.40 goals-against average in the series.
Emery was 15-9-4 with a 2.81 GAA this season. He appeared in 18 road games, starting 15, and went 5-9-1 with a 3.36 GAA.
