PHILADELPHIA (AP) Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is expected to miss up to three weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy on Saturday, forcing him to miss his scheduled start against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"His procedure went pretty well today, he's probably going to be out two to three weeks," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after Chicago's 3-1 loss. "Thanks to our medical staff and the Flyers medical staff today, they did a great job of helping us out."

Crawford, 31, led the Blackhawks to Stanley Cups in 2013 and 2015. Before Saturday he had started in 20 of the Blackhawks' 25 games, going 12-6-2 with a 2.27 goals-against average, .927 save percentage and two shutouts, ranking second among NHL goalies in wins.
