How to freeze live dungeness crab in the most humane way

I just came from the store and got two huge dungeness crabs. For now, they are in the fridge. I'm thinking they are still alive but haven't moved (much). Basically, I don't plan to cook or eat 'em right away. But is there's a correct way or better way to freeze them. Boil them first then freeze? Should I put 'em in a freezer bag or can I just stick 'em directly in the freezer, in the bag that it's in, from the store? Leave 'em out for a while? Any specifics or recommendations on how to go about doing it so it stays the "freshest" also. Right now, Thanks!
