Bolland got hurt in a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 22. The centre has five goals and two assists in 16 games this season.
While Bolland is slated to play Tuesday night against Minnesota, right wing Michael Frolik is out with an illness.
The Blackhawks are looking for a franchise-record 10th consecutive victory. They also are hoping to stretch their point streak to 29 games dating to last season, which would break a tie for the second-longest such streak in NHL history.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
— Bruins coach Claude Julien on his team's play with the loss of defenseman Johnny Boychuk
