Blackhawks RW Hossa leaves after Vancouver's Hansen hits him in head

CHICAGO - Defenceman Brent Seabrook and goalie Corey Crawford have been ruled out for the Chicago Blackhawks' game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Seabrook is out with a lower-body injury after he was hurt in Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings. Crawford has been sidelined with an upper-body injury since he had 31 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to Anaheim last Tuesday.

Ray Emery got the start in goal Tuesday night as the Blackhawks tried to match the NHL record for season-opening point streak at 16 games. They began the day with a 12-0-3 record.

Quote of the Day

I'll be happy, believe me, if we win our last playoff game. Not taking anything away, but we've had a fairly good lead for a while now. It would be more surprising if we didn't get the division. Business as usual.
