Corey Crawford is eligible to come off of Injured Reserve Friday and could possibly start Sunday against the Buffalo Sabers.
That is according to Chicago Sun-Times writer Mark Lazerus who covers the team:
Corey Crawford is skating back in Chicago today. A Friday return is unlikely, but Q was hopeful for Sunday.

Last week Crawford was placed on IR after he appeared to tweak something while playing against the Dallas Stars. It appears that Crawford’s injury wasn’t serious as originally thought.
That’s good news for a Blackhawks team which has lost four-straight games and needs to turn their season around.
Forsberg has been solid in Crawford’s absence, the only problem is that the Blackhawks can’t score whenever he starts. Forsberg will still have two more games to start before Crawford comes back.
