Bolland played 13 shifts totaling 11:37 of ice time through two periods but did not return for the third period. His last shift of the game came right before Viktor Stalberg scored with 3:20 left in the second period to tie the game at 1-1.
Bolland has seven points in 16 games this season. He has been centering the Blackhawks' second line between right wing Patrick Kane and left wing Patrick Sharp.
He did not play Feb. 2 against Calgary due to a lower-body injury.
For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
