Maybe a minor hip issue? Don't know the maintenance required for an artificial hip, especially an artificial hip if you play NHL hockey.
Emery doesn't have an artificial hip; he has a bone graft. They took a piece of his fibula and grafted it into the head of his femur, because the femur wasn't getting enough blood supply and was dying. It would have been a hip replacement if the surgery had not been successful, and he wouldn't be playing hockey with an artificial hip.
Anyway, he's probably just ill.
Edit: Emery day to day, lower body. Crawford starting tomorrow.
And if they do, hopefully Milwaukee loses one of their final 3.
Yep. Milwaukee and Chicago play 2 of their final 4 games against each other (already played 1 of those games the other day, now have 3 games remaining each). If Rockford wins their final two games, and Chicago beats Milwaukee in their 2nd last game of the season, Rockford will be in the playoffs.
