Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told reporters that Corey Crawford was able to get on the ice Saturday and the team was hopeful he would be able to do the same again Sunday.

The Hawks were off Sunday, however, and were unable to provide an update. They will practice Monday at MB Ice Arena.

Quenneville didn't go into any detail as far as how Crawford's session went.

Crawford has been on injured reserve since Dec. 27 with what is believed to be vertigo or a concussion.

Jeff Glass and Anton Forsberg have gone 7-7-2 in Crawford's absence. Glass made 35 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames on Saturday.

Sean Monahan beat Glass with a shot from the slot 59 seconds into extra time.

"I lost it through the screens," Glass told reporters. "Unfortunate break or good play by their player, whatever way you want to look at it, but I just couldn't get eyes on it."
