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.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
