Blackhawks Practice Without D Keith, F Handzus
CHICAGO (AP)--Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith and forward Michal Handzus missed practice Friday, though coach Joel Quenneville said both players are fine and will play in Game 2 of their second-round playoff series against Detroit on Saturday.

Handzus also missed two practices before Wednesday night's series opener, but the 6-foot-4 center managed to play 17 minutes in the 4-1 victory over the Red Wings.

Forward Viktor Stalberg worked outside of the top four lines in practice once again, and he said Quenneville wants him ``to produce more and be more effective.'' Stalberg was benched for Game 1 and Quenneville declined to say if he would play on Saturday.

The speedy Stalberg had nine goals and 14 assists in 47 games this season.
