On Tuesday, the Blackhawks announced that Antti Raanta will break up Corey Crawford’s streak of 14 consecutive starts on Wednesday night when St. Louis visits the United Center.
Crawford will miss the game with a lower-body injury, and Scott Darling is expected to back-up Raanta.
The Blues, still without Brian Elliott, will have Jake Allen between the pipes. Earlier on Tuesday, St. Louis formally announced they have signed future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur, who will back-up Allen on Wednesday. Ken Hitchcock indicated Brodeur could start for the Blues on Thursday or Saturday.
