The Blackhawks will be without center Dave Bolland for the third straight game when they play the Blues Thursday in St. Louis.

Bolland suffered an upper-body injury Feb. 22 against San Jose.

According to Chicago coach Joel Quenneville, Bolland is “progressing,” though it remains unclear what exactly is wrong. The 26-year-old did miss the last 14 games of the 2010-11 regular season, as well as three playoff games, with a concussion. That’s relevant, given the phrase “upper-body injury” has become synonymous with head injuries.

“Hopefully he gets on the ice the next couple of days,” said Quenneville, per CSNChicago.com’s Tracey Myer. “He’s improving every day.”

In other ‘Hawks news, Corey Crawford will start in net against the Blues.

Chicago (16-0-3) has yet to lose a game in regulation.
