Dave Bolland plans to return to the Chicago Blackhawks lineup tonight for the first time since the third period of the Vancouver Canucks game. Bolland missed the thrilling comeback victory in Calgary Saturday night.
Bolland’s presnce will be a huge factor since he routinely seems to be able to get under the San Jose Sharks skin and mainly one of their stars in Joe Thornton. Here is a link to Bolland’s interview today after the morning skate when he talks about his return to the ice.
The Blackhawks will have their hands full shutting down the offense that includes Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Joe Pavelski but the task got a little easier with their biggest nuisance in the lineup tonight.
