After a Blackhawks victory against the Stars last week, former Hawks starting goalie Cristobal Huet sent current goalie Marty Turco a text message sarcastically congratulating him on a victory with backup Goalie Corey Crawford in the net.
The 2010-2011 campaign has been a rough one so far for Marty Turco, the Blackhawks goalie and main free agent acquisition coming into this season. Turco, a seven-year starter for the Dallas Stars and former All-Star, was deemed the starting goalie immediately upon his signing, but has seen significantly diminished playing time recently. Corey Crawford, a guy most Hawks fans have no idea started a few games last year, has been the man between the pipes for five of the Hawk’s previous six games.
"Seven games," said head coach Denis Savard referring to the current Blackhawks losing streak. "Seven mother-effing games. If this keeps going I'm gonna have to fire myself."
