Patrick Kane doubtful for Friday

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane is doubtful for Friday's game against the Detroit Red Wings, according to coach Joel Quenneville.

Kane practiced with his teammates for several minutes on Thursday before leaving the ice. He returned a short time later and tested his sore left ankle with the Hawks training staff looking on.

"[It's] part of the process," Quenneville said. "He might need a day off. He was on there for two days in a row and today he may have aggravated it, but I don't think it's where it's a step in the wrong direction."

Kane was hurt on Dec. 7 when he fell, spinning away from a check against the Calgary Flames.

Quenneville also announced that Fernando Pisani would return to the lineup on Friday, but declared Marian Hossa and Viktor Stalberg out for the game.

Pisani hasn't played since being injured in a game against Anaheim last month while Stalberg was knocked out of Wednesday's game against Colorado after being hit into the boards from behind by Ryan O'Byrne. Quenneville called Stalberg's injury an "upper-body" ailment but said he "looked fine" on Thursday.

Hossa did not skate Thursday, but he has over the last few days. Quenneville said the Hawks are "fine with his progress" and he's still expected back soon.

Corey Crawford will start in net against the Red Wings on Friday.
