BOSTON -- Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville confirmed, after Monday's morning skate, that forward Viktor Stalberg will be in the lineup for Game 3 at the TD Garden.

Stalberg was a healthy scratch for the first two games of the series, in favor of the more physical Brandon Bollig.

Bollig replaced Stalberg in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final after not having played since Game 3 of the Blackhawks' first-round series with the Minnesota Wild. It will be the only lineup change for Chicago in Game 3.

"I think we need some speed from [Stalberg]," said Quenneville on Monday. "I think we need energy. I think he's a threat off the rush and in the [offensive] zone. He's defensively responsible, brings energy.

"In Viktor, we're just looking for more. I think offensively, defensively, just giving us some more in both those areas."
