Watch: Blackhawks’ goalie Crawford ‘day-to-day’ with upper body injury

Mar 1, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT

The Chicago Blackhawks continued their incredible start, pushing their undefeated-in-regulation streak to 20 games to start the 2013 regular season.

But it wasn’t all good news.

Goaltender Corey Crawford left the game after the first period due to injury. Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville told the Chicago Sun-Times it was an “upper body injury” and that Crawford would be day-to-day.

The video below shows Crawford leaving the Blackhawks net at the end of the period. He appeared to be favouring his left arm.

Despite leaving the game, Crawford was still credited with the win, as the Blackhawks beat the St. Louis Blues 3-0.

Crawford made six saves. Ray Emery, who came into the game to start the second period, stopped all 15 shots he faced.

    I was watching the game and they showed Crawford stumbling as he was going to the locker room. He stopped and hunched over as he was going by the bench and then lost his balance a little. Might be a concussion. Wish him the best.
