Ray Emery: (Lower Body) Not Expected Back Friday

Rotowire.com
Update: Emery (lower body) is not expected to be back Friday although Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville did not definitely say that he would be suited up for Game 2 against the Wild, Chicago Tribune reports.

Recommendation: Without Emery it hurts the Blackhawks' depth at goalie with an inexperienced Henrik Karlsson backing up Corey Crawford. It does give Quenneville an out because Emery had outplayed Crawford during the regular season. The Blackhawks though were still going to give Crawford the better chance to start in the playoffs.
