08:30 AM ET 04.08 | It wasn't long ago -- last week, in fact -- that Ray Emery was telling everyone that Corey Crawford was the No. 1 guy in Chicago and he was playing the role of a No. 2. But after earning his second shutout in his last three outings Saturday afternoon, Emery again got the start Sunday. ... [Joel Quenneville] hinted last week that Crawford was his No. 1 guy, citing the fact that he's played more games (23 to Emery's 17). But he's been reluctant to flat-out anoint anyone. ... And asked for the umpteenth time this season if he'd be open to playing both goalies in the playoffs, Quenneville again demurred. "You never know," he said. "I don't want to say no. We'll see. I'm not worried about it right now."

Either way they still haven't plummeted the way everyone hoped once the winning streak was broken.

Nice to see Ray get back on the horse.

Goaltending controversy? Who do the Hawks think they are, Vancouver?

So .... which one is Lupongo in Chicago?

As long as they are never forced to use "the Calgary tower" in net they will be fine. I still have no clue why they picked up that stiff ?

Now he's a big wheel.

Hopefully his success doesn't 'stirrup' any controversy in goal.

Kind of wonder what happened to him. He was always hot and cold, but now he seems very consistent.

I think maybe he got too big for his jockstrap. Nothing like no paycheque to bring you back to earth.

so far they've platooned their way to 62 points...not too shabby. But I guess in the playoffs something's gotta give.

That will really "bring you back to earth".

I was so hoping for a thread on Kitty Carlyle's reasoning that helmets help cause concussions. Totally moronic
