CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford is out of the game against the Florida Panthers because of an injury sustained with 6:15 left in the first period.

Crawford, the Blackhawks' top netminder, went down to make a pad save on Marcel Goc moments earlier on Sunday night and was unable to get back up on his skates.

He was helped from the ice by teammates and a trainer and was replaced by rookie Antti Raanta with Chicago leading 2-0.
