The flu strikes again on a key player in Chicago.

Because blowing your nose and playing the Blues is not recommended.

Corey Crawford has developed the flu and will miss the game tonight. The team confirmed it earlier today. 

It will give Scott Darling a chance to stop a few pucks in what is expected to be an intense and physical game. The Blues come in Chicago refreshed, after 5 days off, and will probably play as intensely as usual in a very physical game. That rivalry is always a good show. 

The team expect Crawford to rejoin the formation before Wednesday, where they'll battle against the Penguins.
