The Chicago Blackhawks would be in big trouble if Corey Crawford isn’t able to play.
The Chicago Blackhawks are already underdogs in their play-in series against the Edmonton Oilers because the Oilers were a good hockey team and the Hawks weren’t. Well, the Blackhawks were invited into the 24 teams “return to play” tournament and they made it by a very slim margin. Some people see them as a team that can pull an upset but it looks a lot less likely if Corey Crawford is unable to play.
The National Hockey League had a new collective bargaining agreement come out recently and they are now able to refrain from saying what is wrong with people when they are sick or injured. Every team in the league is using the term “unfit to play” if someone is absent from practice. Corey Crawford was deemed unfit to play for some reason.
