Blackhawks' Niemi sick; Huet starts

Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Antti Niemi is sick and was replaced by Cristobal Huet Wednesday night against the St. Louis Blues.

The Blackhawks called up goalie Joe Fallon from Rockford of the AHL to back up Huet.

And with Dave Bolland playing for the first time since his November back surgery, Colin Fraser was a healthy scratch.
