On top of an elite offense, it doesn't help that the Minnesota Wild are also up against against a Hall of Fame goaltender - or at least that's what Mike Yeo thinks. 

Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford may not be one of the all-time greats, but he is playing like one says the Wild's head coach. 

"Crawford, he's a star against us,"  Yeo said following Tuesday's 1-0 loss. "He's (Martin) Brodeur. He's (Patrick) Roy. He's everybody against us, so we've got to find a way to solve that."

After having the net stolen away from him during the first round against the Nashville Predators by backup Scott Darling, Crawford has cemented himself as the team's number one. 

The 30-year-old has a 1.33 goals against average, a .959 save percentage, and a shutout in the three games against the Wild. 

The Blackhawks have the Wild on the ropes leading the series 3-0. If the Wild want to get back into the series they are going to have to put an end to Crawford's Brodeur-esque play.
