My role these last few months is to take down some of those top lines and make sure they don't get into our zone.&quot; <br /> <br /> On improving: &quot;Last year was a learning thing, seeing how some older guys played. It's a case of putting that into my game and helping us to keep winning.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="they"></a><b>THEY SAID IT</b><br /> Blackhawks forward Andrew Ladd: &quot;He just doesn't have much of a weakness. He skates well, he's patient with the puck, great defensively, and offensively he can put the puck in the net and make plays. For me and Havlat, he's just an easy player to play with. He always seems to be in the right spot, and it makes it a lot easier for us.&quot; <br /> <br /> Hawks Head Coach Joel Quenneville: &quot;His thought process with and without the puck is usually correct. Whatever the assignment is, [Bolland] handles it well.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="news"></a><b>IN THE NEWS</b><br /> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/hockey/blackhawks/chi-14-blackhawks-chicagojan14,0,2871227.story">Looks like Blackhawks' Dave Bolland is here to stay</a> <br /> <br />

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
