CHICAGO -- Chicago defenceman 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 centre 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 on Saturday Quenneville said he would be a healthy scratch.

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