For Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford the extra-long offseason wasn't a good thing. After a down year in 2011-2012, Crawford is looking for redemption.

"I've been itching to get back on the ice and prove everyone wrong," Crawford said Thursday before leaving for the season opener in Los Angeles on Saturday. "I definitely want to be here for the future so I have to make sure I play well and play well all the time."
