Blackhawks D Duncan Keith back in lineup after sitting out with illness

CHICAGO - Defenceman Duncan Keith is back in the lineup for the Blackhawks' game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Keith missed Chicago's 2-1 loss at Minnesota on Thursday night due to an illness. It was the first time he had missed a game this season.

Keith entered Sunday night's game against Winnipeg with a team-best 43 assists.

While Keith returned to the lineup, forward Bryan Bickell was scratched. He has struggled since returning from a lower-body injury.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
