CHICAGO -- Injured Chicago Blackhawks forward Dave Bolland and goaltender Ray Emery will not play Friday in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the Minnesota Wild, coach Joel Quenneville said Thursday.
"We're going to rule them out," Quenneville said of both players. "Ray was out there today. [Bolland] didn't skate, but he's real close to getting on the ice. ... [Emery] felt good, too. It was good progress today."
Quenneville said Bolland and Emery likely would travel with the team to Minnesota on Saturday. Games 3 and 4 will be in St. Paul.
Bolland has missed four consecutive games because of a lower-body injury suffered against the Vancouver Canucks on April 22. Bolland, who has missed 13 games this season because of various injuries, has seven goals and seven assists in 35 games.
Emery has missed three consecutive games with a lower-body injury. He suffered the injury against the Edmonton Oilers on April 24. He is 17-1-0 with a 1.94 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage this season.
The Blackhawks defeated the Wild 2-1 in overtime in Game 1 on Tuesday. Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford made 26 saves in the victory, and he was backed up by Henrik Karlsson, who was recently recalled from the AHL's Rockford IceHogs.
