Quenneville: Bolland in tonight, Seabrook out


According to the Chicago Blackhawks' official twitter feed, coach Joel Quenneville said this morning that center Dave Bolland will return to the lineup for tonight's crucial Game 4 against the Vancouver Canucks (8 ET, VERSUS, CBC, RDS).

Chicago, the defending Stanley Cup champions, trail Vancouver 3-0 in the first-round series.

Bolland, who played a pivotal role in Chicago's six-game win over Vancouver in the second round of last year's playoffs, has not played since March 9 due to a concussion. Bolland tallied 15 goals and 22 assists this season.

Defenseman Brent Seabrook, who had 48 points this season, will be out of the lineup, however. Seabrook was on the receiving end of a hit by Vancouver's Raffi Torres in Sunday night's Game 3 that resulted in Torres receiving a minor penalty for interference. While Torres did face a disciplinary hearing Monday, he was not given any additional discipline by NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
