Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin left the game against the Nashville Predators on Saturday night in the first period with an apparent lower-body injury.

Khabibulin sustained the injury when he went down into the butterfly on a slap shot from the point by Predators defenseman Shea Weber. The veteran goalie had to be helped from the Bridgestone Arena ice.

Khabibulin left with 4:27 remaining in the first period. He had allowed two goals on eight shots.

Corey Crawford, who was supposed to get the night off, entered the game with the Blackhawks trailing 2-0. He gave up five goals on 22 shots.

Nashville won the game, 7-2.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
