Blackhawks scramble to find emergency backup goalie

PHILADELPHIA -- Eric Semborski was working at Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, New Jersey, on Saturday morning. Two hours later he was sitting in the visitors locker room at Wells Fargo Center, getting dressed with the Chicago Blackhawks, his teammates for a day. Semborski signed an amateur tryout contract with the Blackhawks on Saturday after Corey Crawford needed an appendectomy, leaving Chicago without a goaltender to back up Scott Darling.
