"Corey was dynamic for us last season," Bowman told the Tribune. "He pretty much helped us get in the playoffs and then he was dynamite in the playoffs. We're only seven, eight months removed from that. It's one of those things where success can help boost your confidence and get you back in short order."
The Hawks will attempt to snap a five-game losing streak on Tuesday night when they face the Colorado Avalanche, while Crawford will look to improve his .900 save percentage and 2.94 goals-against-average he has posted in 38 games this season.
Meanwhile, Bowman will continue to focus on improving on the back end and add a blueliner in time for the deadline. However, Crawford believes the overall team defense can be upgraded by the current team personnel.
"I'm not worried about our guys in front," Crawford said. "They've played well before in front of me. They've been blocking shots like crazy. The worst thing I can do is start worrying about what our guys are doing up front and get away from my game. I just have to focus on making saves, keeping our team in the game and winning hockey games."
