CHICAGO – Corey Crawford was back on the ice Saturday for the first time since the end of December.
Head coach Joel Quenneville said he skated back home in Chicago and is expected to do the same on Sunday.
The last time Crawford was in net for the Blackhawks was two days before Christmas, in a 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils.
