The way bends occur, it is often times the blow reed in the slot that fails 
rather than the draw note.  If this happens, the native pitch of the blow note 
will be flat (try playing a split octave including that note to see if it has 
changed signiificantly).  I'd just replace the reed that's failed.  

As Iceman said, it is usually 4, 5, and 6 that flat first and fastest.
