Chicago's leading scorer, Martin Havlat, and goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin didn't practise on Tuesday, but they're making the trip to Detroit for Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

Blackhawks' head coach Joel Quenneville says both Havlat and Khabibulin will be evaluated after Wednesday morning's pre-game skate. It will then be determined whether they're able to suit up in a do-or-die Game 5 for Chicago.

The Red Wings lead the best-of-seven series 3-1 and have a chance to clinch at home.

Havlat was a surprise addition to Chicago's lineup on Sunday, only two days after he was knocked out cold by a hit from Niklas Kronwall.

The Blackhawks' leading scorer in both the regular season and playoffs, Havlat was forced to leave Game 3 after the first period hit.

On Sunday in Game 4, Havlat played only seven minutes and 59 seconds. He left the game in the second period after he took a hit in front of Chicago's bench.

Khabibulin left Friday's game after two periods with a lower body injury.

He was replaced by Cristobal Huet, who got the start in Game 4 and gave up five goals in a 6-1 loss.

After giving up a fourth goal in the second period on Sunday in Game 4, Huet was pulled in favour of young Corey Crawford, but was back between the pipes for the third period.
