Blackhawks put F Peter Regin in lineup for first time in post-season

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.

Defenceman Michal Rozsival and forward Jeremy Morin also were scratched, putting defenceman Sheldon Brookbank and forward Kris Versteeg back in the lineup.

The Wild played without Ballard (upper-body injury) and forward Matt Moulson (lower-body injury).

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
