Antti Raanta and Kent Simpson began the season as Rockford’s goalie tandem. On Tuesday against the
Dallas Stars, they’ll be the Blackhawks’ goalie tandem.

Corey Crawford, who suffered a groin injury Sunday against the Florida Panthers, didn’t make the trip to Dallas, prompting the Hawks to recall Simpson from Rockford. Simpson was 6-7-0 with a 3.38 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage with the IceHogs this season.

The Hawks didn’t provide any further details about Crawford’s status, but coach Joel Quenneville said after the game Sunday that he didn’t think the
injury was too serious.
