CHICAGO - Blackhawks forward Peter Regin is in the lineup for the first time this post-season for Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Minnesota Wild.
Regin was acquired in a February trade with the New York Islanders. He had two goals and two assists in 17 regular-season games for Chicago.
The Blackhawks were without forwards Brandon Bollig and Andrew Shaw for Sunday night's game. Bollig was suspended for two games for boarding Wild defenceman Keith Ballard in Game 4, and Shaw has been out since Game 1 with a lower-body injury.
This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
