Michal Rozsival is day to day with a lower-body injury but should skate Wednesday morning, and Corey Crawford will get the start when the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night.
Rozsival, who was injured against Dallas last week -- The Daily Herald's Tim Sassone reported it was a knee-related injury -- hasn't played or skated since that night. Coach Joel Quenneville said Rozsival is "all right," and should be skating when the team has its morning session in St. Paul tomorrow.
Meanwhile, the Blackhawks are prepping for their six-game road trip, the longest of this shortened season. Right wing Marian Hossa said, "when we come after these six games, we’ll really know where our team is."
Today marked the Blackhawks' first practice in the regular season, and Quenneville liked the team's approach.
"We're not gong to have many, and when we do go it’ll be short," Quenneville said of practice. "We had great pace, great energy; it was a good, productive day."
