Blackhawks F Kris Versteeg scratched for second straight game

CHICAGO - Blackhawks forward Kris Versteeg has been scratched for the second straight playoff game.

Versteeg also missed Chicago's 5-1 victory over St. Louis in the clinching Game 6 on Sunday. But it looked as if the veteran forward would be back for the opener of the Western Conference semifinals against Minnesota. He warmed up before Friday night's Game 1.

Joakim Nordstrom replaced Versteeg in the lineup again. It was Nordstrom's second career playoff game.

Versteeg played the first five playoff games against the Blues, compiling two assists. He has 14 goals and 25 assists in 62 career playoff games.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
