Blackhawks center Dave Bolland (groin) and backup goalie Ray Emery (lower-body) will not dress Tuesday against the Wild at the United Center.

“We’ll say day-to-day,” ‘Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said today, per the Chicago Tribune. “We’re hopeful they’re going to be on the ice real soon. We expect them on the ice real soon.”

Bolland missed the last three games of the regular season with his ailment, while Emery last made an appearance in Chicago’s goal on April 24.

Henrik Karlsson will back up starter Corey Crawford tomorrow.

Bolland’s absence likely means veteran center Michal Handzus, acquired from San Jose a month ago, will continue to skate on the second line between Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp.
