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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
