The Chicago Blackhawks received some good news and some bad news on Tuesday. The good news is that center Dave Bolland will return to the lineup. The bad news is that defenseman Brent Seabrook won’t play in game four.
Bolland (15 G, 22 A) has been out since suffering a concussion against the Tampa Bay Lighting on March 9. The defensive minded center usually draws the assignment of shutting down the opponent’s best offensive line. Against the Vancouver Canucks that means he could draw the Sedin-line.
Seabrook took an hit to the head from Raffi Torres during Sunday night’s loss. It was a hit that many, including Seabrook, thought should have warranted a suspension for Torres. However, no such suspension was handed down.
The Blackhawks also announced that Bryan Bickell and Ryan Johnson would play on Tuesday night.
