David Rundblad has been scratched for 15 of Chicago's 20 games this season.
Clearly, he has a hard time cracking the Blackhawks' lineup. "We want to get him on the ice more," GM Stan Bowman said. "He hasn't played a lot of games and it's hard to look good when you don't play often. When a young player is trying to establish himself in the league, it's one of the hardest things." Coach Joel Quenneville chose to use Viktor Svedberg and Erik Gustafsson instead of Rundblad while Duncan Keith was injured. Nov 23 - 11:41 AM
