Havlat, Khabibulin don't practise but set to travel to Detroit

CHICAGO - Blackhawks right-wing Martin Havlat and goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin have skipped the team's practice but were set to make the trip to Detroit for Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said both would be evaluated after Wednesday morning's pre-game skate.

Havlat returned to the Blackhawks' lineup Sunday, two days after he took a hit from Niklas Kronwall that forced him out of Game 3 in the first period.

Havlat, Chicago's leader in points during the regular season and in the playoffs, played only seven minutes 59 seconds Sunday and hardly at all after the first period.

Khabibulin left after two periods Friday with a lower body injury. Cristobal Huet replaced him Sunday and gave up five goals in a 6-1 loss.
