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.
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.
