DENVER - Four Blackhawks players missed practice Wednesday due to being "under the weather," said Head Coach Joel Quenneville. Defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson
and Nick Leddy
watched practice from the stands of the University of Denver's Magness Arena, along with forwards Viktor Stalberg
and Bryan Bickell
Coach Quenneville also said that defenseman Steve Montador
, who suffered an upper body injury in the 5-2 loss to Colorado Tuesday night, was doing better and would be re-evaluated Thursday in San Jose.
