DENVER - Four Blackhawks players missed practice Wednesday due to being "under the weather," said Head Coach Joel Quenneville. Defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson and Nick Leddy watched practice from the stands of the University of Denver's Magness Arena, along with forwards Viktor Stalberg and Bryan Bickell.

Coach Quenneville also said that defenseman Steve Montador, who suffered an upper body injury in the 5-2 loss to Colorado Tuesday night, was doing better and would be re-evaluated Thursday in San Jose.
