FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The ''next man up'' approach will be tested again after another injury to a key defender for the New England Patriots.
Maybe this time they'll do better.
Antti Raanta was a superb substitute for an injured Corey Crawford in the Chicago Blackhawks' latest game and is expected to make a second straight start with Crawford likely to miss a short road
The New England Patriots are well rested and winners of three straight, but will likely have to overcome the absence of yet another key player to keep that run going.
