VANCOUVERChicago Blackhawks center Dave Bolland left Monday's game against the Vancouver Canucks in the first period with a lower-body injury.

Bolland, who has seven goal and 14 points while playing mostly as the second line center for the NHL-leading Blackhawks, will not return, according to the team.

It wasn't clear how Bolland got hurt, but both he and Marcus Kruger went to the dressing room shortly after a rare-failed penalty kill in the first period. Kruger returned to start the second period, and took over Bolland's spot on the second line.

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.
