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 think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
