Goalie Corey Crawford has been cleared to return, but he won't be in the net against the San Jose Sharks Friday night when the Blackhawks go for the NHL record of 17 games to start the season of getting at least 1 point.

Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said Ray Emery would start for the fourth game in a row even though he missed practice Thursday attending to a family matter.


Crawford has been sidelined for more than a week with a suspected concussion suffered Feb. 12 against Anaheim when he was run over by Bobby Ryan.

"I wish the decision was mine," Crawford said after he practiced with the team for the first time on Thursday. "The decision if Q's, but I've been cleared to go.

"I feel good. I had a good practice today so I'm ready to go. My timing was a little bit off, but nothing crazy. I was seeing the puck well and moving well."

Seabrook back, too:

Defenseman Brent Seabrook will return to play against the Sharks as well after missing Tuesday's Vancouver game with a lower body injury.

"Seabs is good and he wants to play," Joel Quenneville said. "He's going to play."
