Blackhawks winger Viktor Stalberg was still in a white jersey, still skating outside the top four lines at Friday's practice, meaning he'll likely be a healthy scratch again in Saturday's Game 2 against the Detroit Wings.
"It's frustrating, obviously," Stalberg said. "Can't really make it too much about yourself, it's about winning games right now, and we won. It was a good start to the series, that's what it's about right now."
Stalberg shed a little light on to what his benching's about. While Hawks coach Joel Quenneville wouldn't get into specifics, Stalberg said he was told to be more intense and play harder.
"It's nothing you've never heard before," Stalberg said. "Most guys, when they're not playing, get to hear that. Nothing too different, but he wants me to produce more and be more effective out there. Hopefully I can get back and I'll try to make a difference."
