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

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
