Darling, who stopped 26 of 29 shots in a 3-2 loss to Philly on Wednesday, hasn’t been very busy this year. Crawford has been great and a real workhorse for Chicago, which has resulted in Darling making just 19 appearances (14 of which were starts).
All told, the 27-year-old is 6-6-2 this season, with a .912 save percentage and 2.60 GAA.
As for Crawford, the ‘Hawks weren’t offering much as to injury specifics (surprise!)
Crawford did struggle in his last two outings prior to being shelved with the injury, giving up nine goals on 45 shots in losses to Dallas and Los Angeles.
For the Jets, Ondrej Pavelec is in goal.
— Braden Holtby will be in goal when Washington and head coach Barry Trotz host Trotz’s former team, Nashville. The Preds haven’t announced a starter yet.
— Vancouver will give Jacob Markstrom the nod tonight in Edmonton. No word yet on an Oilers starter.
