Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville isn't sure what Keith is sick with and he consequently couldn't rule out the possibility that it's the mumps. About 15 NHL players have been hit by the disease. With Keith sidelined, David Rundblad will probably draw into the lineup.

Chicago struggled defensively against Los Angeles in the Western Conference Final.

The Kings ended up winning the series in Game 7 after Chicago conceded the lead three times. Their worst collapse though came in Game 2 when the Blackhawks had a 2-0 lead late in the second period and Los Angeles responded with six unanswered goals. "Obviously we gave up a lot of leads this series, especially," Duncan Keith said. "You go back to Game 2, we had the lead going into the third. I don't know. We played hard, but it just seemed like obviously you've got to give L.A. a lot of credit. They were resilient and never gave up. In Game 7, overtime, anything can happen."
