Blackhawks insert Stalberg into fourth line, sit Brandon Bollig in Boston

BOSTON - Vicktor Stalberg will replace Brandon Bollig in Chicago's Game 3 lineup against Boston.

Stalberg was a healthy scratch the first two games of the series.

Coach Joel Quenneville says he is just looking for more from Stalberg, both offensively and defensively.

Stalberg skated with Marcus Kruger and Michal Frolik on Chicago's fourth line in the Hawks' morning session on the ice.

The 27-year-old Swede has no goals and three assists in 15 playoff games this season. Bollig had yet to reigster a point in five games.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
