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

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
