Blackhawks C Michal Handzus out with upper-body injury

CHICAGO - Blackhawks centre Michal Handzus has been ruled out of Chicago's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville says Saturday that Handzus has an upper-body injury. The 36-year-old forward has a goal and two assists in nine games this season.

Forwards Jeremy Morin and Brad Mills, who were promoted from Rockford of the AHL on Friday, are expected to play against the Wild on Saturday night.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
