Chicago Blackhawks scratch F Kris Versteeg for Game 6 against St. Louis Blues

CHICAGO - The Blackhawks have scratched forward Kris Versteeg for Game 6 of their first-round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.

Versteeg played in each of the first five playoff games, compiling two assists. He also warmed up before Sunday's game.

Forward Joakim Nordstrom was active for the first time in the post-season.

Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook also returned after he was suspended for the previous three games. With Seabrook active, defenceman Sheldon Brookbank was scratched.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
