Handzus in, Stalberg out for Blackhawks

Michal Handzus will be in the lineup for the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of their Western Conference Semifinal series against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday (1 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, RDS), and forward Viktor Stalberg will be a healthy scratch.

Handzus missed practice Friday, the third straight on-ice session, but will be back in his familiar second-line center spot, between Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp.

Stalberg had one assist in five games in the first round against the Minnesota Wild, but was scratched from the lineup in Game 1 against the Red Wings.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
