Defensemen David Rundblad, Michael Paliotta, and Kyle Cumiskey will watch from the press box for Game 1 Wednesday night.

Rundblad will give way to Michal Rozsival for Game 1 but may get a chance to play in a playoff game soon. Paliotta is a 22-year-old rookie who played in just one game this season where he recorded an assists and two shots on goal. Cumiskey was recalled on April 12th as insurance and had only dressed in seven games this season without picking up a point. It’s very likely that both players will just participate in practices for experience during the Blackhawks playoff run.

David Rundblad has been better for the Blackhawks since returning to the right side.

He has been playing with more confidence and he's contributed three points, including two goals, in his past five games. "[Assistant coach] Mike Kitchen's been telling me that a lot, too, that I have to shoot," Rundblad said. "Of course I like to, when I get a chance, take a shot. That's what I've been trying to do lately; it's been working, I guess. It's a good feeling to score goals." He has 10 points and a plus-16 rating in 30 games this campaign.

David Rundblad will tag in for Tim Erixon against the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.

Rundblad has just seven points and 17 blocks through 25 games this season, and Erixon has just six points, none with Chicago, through 25 games himself. Needless to say, neither have much fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 8:10 PM

David Rundblad is trying to cement his place in Chicago's lineup.

He scored his second career goal, and first since 2011-12, in last Sunday's win over Toronto. Rundblad followed that up by logging a season-high 19:27 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to Winnipeg. He's been in and out of the lineup for Chicago, but he's hoping he can continue to play regularly when the Christmas break is over. He's been competing with Tim Erixon for playing time and appears to have the inside track right now. .
