SAN JOSE, Calif. - The spotlight is shining brightly on Corey Crawford right now. He's won seven consecutive games and is a big reason why the Hawks have been able to rebound this season.
But he's not reading too much into his success or which records he's on the verge of tying.
Crawford gets the nod against the San Jose Sharks Saturday. It will be the sixth time in the last seven games for Crawford, who started the season as Marty Turco's backup.
Crawford's seven wins in a row are one shy of Denis DeJordy's franchise record of eight straight wins for a rookie goalie.
"It's pretty cool, but I'm not thinking of any personal stuff," Crawford said. "The team has been playing really well. A lot of effort had gone into it from everyone. It's cool, but there is still a lot of work to be done. So you can't stop here."
Of course, the Sharks, who have Antti Niemi in the net, will be a formidable challenge. Niemi beat out Crawford for the backup spot last preseason.
"It's going to be another tough game in a really tough building," Crawford said. "We have to bring our best game."
