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.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
