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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
