Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says goaltender Corey Crawford will start Sunday against the Detroit Red Wings.
Crawford left his last game with an upper-body injury. He played in only the first period of Thursday night's win at St. Louis. Ray Emery relieved Crawford against the Blues and finished off a 3-0 shutout.
Quenneville insists Crawford's latest injury isn't the same one that took him off the ice previously this season.
Emery played and Crawford was a reserve on the bench Friday night in a 4-3 overtime win over Columbus that extended the Blackhawks' NHL-record, season-opening points streak to 21 games. Emery is 8-0 as a starter and ranks among NHL leaders with in save percentage and goals-against average.

Corey Crawford was not at Blackhawks practice on Friday morning, and is day-to-day with an “upper-body injury,” according to coach Joel Quenneville.

In a promotion for the Illinois Lottery, Blackhawks winger Patrick Sharp dressed up in a dog costume and surprised a fan named Deb with a Valentines Day gift basket (in an attempt to demonstrate their motto that “anything’s possible”).

Just heard from a source with links to the Blackhawks: Corey Crawford suffered a concussion during the game with Anaheim.
This has not been confirmed by the team to the best of my knowledge, beyond Coach Joel Quenneville's description of an "upper body injury."
His status is day to day. More as I have it.
from Ben Strauss of the New York Times,
Blackhawks players seemed at a loss to explain their scorching start.
Right wing Patrick Kane, tied for second in the league through Wednesday with 20 points, said of his success, “Sometimes the puck finds you.”
Or as the captain Jonathan Toews put it, “I don’t know if there’s a method to the madness.”
Joe Thornton vs. Jonathan Toews. In a hockey fight. Let me repeat that for you. Joe Thornton vs. Jonathan Toews in a hockey fight. How rare is that? IT’S REAL F-ING RARE.
Toews had, until last night, just two fights in the NHL. TWO. Let me repeat, Jonathan Toews had just two fights in the NHL until last night when he instigated Joe Thornton (his NHL fight card).
Both are captains...
It’s not often that you see two superstars pair off to go at it with each other, but that’s exactly what happened on Friday night when the Chicago Blackhawks took on the San Jose Sharks. Sharks captain Joe Thornton has 26 fights under his belt now, and this gives Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews three total fights for his career. Toews was incensed the entire shift and was...

LA Kings @ Chicago Blackhawks
2:30PM Central/12:30 Pacific
United Center, Chicago
This one has all the earmarks of a trap game.
The Hawks are riding high in confidence, coming off a 4-1 thrashing of a top conference rival. On paper, they ook vastly superior to today's opponent. However, said opponent happens...
The Chicago Blackhawks are off to an incredible start. After 14 games they are yet to suffer a loss in regulation. They have scored 19 goals more than they have allowed. A big part of their success is the play of Jonathan Toews. He is a great two-way player and my pick for the Selke Trophy at this point.
While playing on the league's top team he is clearly a step...
I think Toews feels Thornton embellished the call a bit.
Both received 5 for fighting, Toews received 2 for boarding and 2 for unsportsmanlike conduct, probably starting a fight with a visor on.
With that tilt, former Fighting Sioux forward Jonathan Toews has been in three fights during his professional career. I guess that's why he wears the "C" and I have to tip my hate the Blackhawks center. Joe Thornton has been known to drop the gloves a little more frequently.
