Blackhawks G Corey Crawford leaves game vs. Panthers due to injury in 1st period

CHICAGO - Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford is out of the game against the Florida Panthers because of an injury sustained with 6:15 left in the first period.

Crawford, the Blackhawks' top netminder, went down to make a pad save on Marcel Goc moments earlier on Sunday night and was unable to get back up on his skates.

He was helped from the ice by teammates and a trainer and was replaced by rookie Antti Raanta with Chicago leading 2-0.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
