Corey Crawford Staying Home
Coach Q: Crawford will not make this weekend’s trip to Nashville or St. Louis. Hopes Crow will get back on the ice while the team’s away.

The Blackhawks return home on Sunday to host the Ottawa Senators. In a subsequent tweet the Blackhawks indicated that Crawford remains day-to-day.
Scott Darling, recalled from Rockford before Tuesday’s game, may get work in one of the upcoming games while Crawford is out of the lineup.

Absolutely sorry to see CC not making the trip. However, this is a good time to give Darling a test. Last year, early on, the Hawks seemed to step up their D game when Raanta had to get the call last season. I am sure they will do the same for Darling.
I think all the chatter about Morin, Johns, Clendening, Ross, TT, Rundblad etc shows the strength of the organization. None of these (w the exp of TT) may be superstars but they are all decent NHL projected players. Injuries are going to occur. We can not replace a Kane or Toews or Hoss, but no team can. I feel fortunate and confident that these prospects can fill in the gaps great and the Hawks have many good years ahead.
Mike, exactly why i enjoy the Rockford reports from those that see their games. Not looking to change things but I am curious who is living up to expectations. Now that Sr. Brad doesnt post I know there were others that would let us know how things are going down on the farm.
Does anyone know what CCs injury is, almost sounds concusion like. Just wondering.
I am by no means well informed in the hockey world, but I do read a lot of updates. I swear the first mention of crawford’s absence (tweet or what have you) was due to illness. This obviously does not appear to be the case, but it leads me to a question I have been wondering in all my years as a hockey fan- why are injury reports in hockey so vague in comparison to other sports?
imtgrill, don’t want opposing players aiming at an injury area
