Crawford was hit in the mask by a Bryan Bickell shot, but after a quick stop off the ice he was back in the crease to finish practice. Coach Joel Quenneville confirmed Crawford would start in goal against the Philadelphia Flyers (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TVA Sports).
"Happens sometimes," Crawford said. "Was a shot, hit me in the head. Just a shot. Happens sometimes. Just a weird play, that's all."
While Crawford downplayed it, his teammates had a bit of concern.
"We're hoping he's OK," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said. "We all know what he's meant to us this year. I talk about [Patrick] Kane or some of our other players we've played without, but it's another thing to lose a goaltender, especially one like Crow [Crawford]."
