Duncan Keith Expected To Be Ready For Game 4 Despite Birth Of First Son

ST. PAUL, Minn. (CBS) Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith was back in Chicago Tuesday for the birth of his first son, but is expected to make it back to Minnesota in time for tonight’s Game 4 against the Wild.

CBS 2’s Megan Mawicke reports that Keith left the Twin Cities this morning and made it to Chicago in time for the birth of his son. The Blackhawks later announced the defenseman was expected to make it back in time for tonight’s 8:30 p.m. CT puck drop.

Meanwhile, backup goaltender Ray Emery and forward Dave Bolland were on the ice at Tuesday’s morning skate at the Xcel Energy Center, but have been ruled out for tonight’s game.

Quenneville said forward Daniel Carcillo “could play” tonight. He was a healthy scratch in the first three games of the series.
