Chicago Blackhawks C Dave Bolland returns to lineup after injury

CHICAGO - Dave Bolland is back in the lineup for the Chicago Blackhawks after missing five consecutive games with an upper-body injury.

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.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
