The Chicago Blackhawks will see a slight lineup tweak as Michal Rozsival replaces Sheldon Brookbank on defense.

The Los Angeles Kings are likely to push Chicago as much as anyone can starting with Game 1 on Sunday, so it makes sense that the 'Hawks are making changes even coming off a victory. This shouldn't have big fantasy implications, though.

Michal Rozsival accidentally nailed linesman Andy McElman in the face with a hard right hand during a scrum with Colorado's Maxime Talbot on Tuesday night.

"I really feel bad," Rozsival said. "It wasn't my intention at all to do anything like that. We were pushing each other and (Talbot) punched me. I punched him back, and he kind of deflected my arm. I seriously don't know how it could have happened. (McElman) seemed to be OK. It wasn't a hard punch, but he didn't expect it so he was suckered." As expected, he didn't face any supplemental discipline for the play. He was a healthy scratch against Columbus on Thursday. Perhaps Chicago coach Joel Quenneville was trying to keep the officials safe in that game.

He wasn't alone. Center Jiri Novotny, who played 189 NHL games with Buffalo, Washington and Columbus and now plays with Prague Lev in the KHL, also watched from the bench. Veteran NHLer Patrik Elias did not even dress for the Czechs. No reason was given for his absence. The New Jersey Devils centre, who had three goals and six points in his previous three trips to the Olympics, had an assist in the Czechs' first two games.
