Chicago Blackhawks' goaltender Corey Crawford suffered a left-foot injury the other day and will be out two to three weeks, Crawford informed the media on Wednesday morning.

Crawford, who was wearing a walking boot on his left foot, said he "missed a step" when he was leaving a concert the other night. He did not reveal which concert he was attending when pressed for details.

Crawford was playing quite well this season. He started 14 consecutive games, including all six on the Blackhawks' Circus Trip. The Canadian native is 12-5-1 with a 1.87 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.

Antti Raanta will start Wednesday night against the St. Louis Blues and Scott Darling was recalled Tuesday to be the backup.
