Corey Crawford set to return to Chicago Blackhawks

Goalie Corey Crawford is ready to return sooner than later for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Crawford will make his return to the team on Friday night, just a week after he was placed on IR with an injury. It appeared as if Crawford would return Sunday at the earliest but with the Blackhawks reeling his return could be a big boost for the team.

The Blackhawks have lost 5-straight games after a 6-2 thrashing by the Washington Capitals on Wednesday. They will host the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night at the UC with a chance to right the ship.

In addition to Crawford returning, the Blackhawks have called up forward Vinnie Hinostroza from Rockford. Hopefully Hinostroza can have some sort of impact right away.

Puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m.
