Duncan Keith will miss Tuesday's game against Minnesota due to an illness.

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.

Keith is having a typical season by his standards, which is to say he's been excellent. With 18 points in 28 games he's well on his way to surpassing 50 with a gaudy plus/minus rating. Just another day at the office for the perennial Norris Trophy candidate. Bryan Bickell also scored for Chicago in the win.

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."

The Chicago Blackhawks are understandably upbeat after closing the 3-1 series deficit against the Los Angeles Kings.

"We're excited but nothing's done yet. We understand that," Duncan Keith said . "We've given ourselves the opportunity to play in that Game 7, to have a chance to move on, and I think that’s what we're excited about." Game 7 will be played Sunday night. If Chicago wins, this will be the second straight campaign they will have overcome a 3-1 series deficit. They were in that position against the Detroit Red Wings in the second round of the 2013 playoffs.
