According to the Chicago Blackhawks
' official twitter feed, coach Joel Quenneville
said this morning that center Dave Bolland
will return to the lineup for tonight's crucial Game 4 against the Vancouver Canucks
(8 ET, VERSUS, CBC, RDS).
Chicago, the defending Stanley Cup champions, trail Vancouver 3-0 in the first-round series.
Bolland, who played a pivotal role in Chicago's six-game win over Vancouver in the second round of last year's playoffs, has not played since March 9 due to a concussion. Bolland tallied 15 goals and 22 assists this season.
Defenseman Brent Seabrook
, who had 48 points this season, will be out of the lineup, however. Seabrook was on the receiving end of a hit by Vancouver's Raffi Torres
in Sunday night's Game 3 that resulted in Torres receiving a minor penalty for interference. While Torres did face a disciplinary hearing Monday, he was not given any additional discipline by NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell
