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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
