Emery started the game and got 13 minutes and 49 seconds into the first period before leaving with the injury. He allowed one goal on eight shots.
The 30-year-old puck stopper is enjoying an impressive year with the Blackhawks, as they hunt down a Presidents’ Trophy as the NHL’s best regular season team. He has a record of 16 wins and just one regulation loss in 20 games. He also has a goals-against average of 1.91.
Corey Crawford came into the game for Emery. The Blackhawks held a 2-1 lead after the opening period.
Update: Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune tweeted out: “Joel Quenneville said Ray Emery’s lower-body injury is not serious and goaltender is ‘day-to-day.'”
