Corey Crawford's mysterious "lower-body" injury turned out to be a fairly hilarious one—the Blackhawks goalie says he missed a step and fell down while leaving a concert.

Coach Joel Quenneville said Crawford, who wore a walking boot when he met the media today, will be out two to three weeks.

"I was at a concert the other day and was on the way out and missed a step and I didn't think it was that bad," Crawford said. "I woke up the next day and it was worse than I thought.
