Around the UC:

-"The Chicago Blackhawks have activated forward Dave Bolland from the Injured Reserve list."
NHL.com: Blackhawks activate Dave Bolland from injured reserve

-"The defending Stanley Cup® champion Chicago Blackhawks have placed a League-high six players on the 100-name ballot, led by 2010 Playoffs MVP Jonathan Toews. Joining the Blackhawks captain are defensemen Brian Campbell, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook plus forwards Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane."

-Hossa preaches: ''When things aren't going your way, you try sometimes to do too much. When you try to do too much, it's not going to work. I learned that years ago. You try and do everything yourself, [but] it's not going to work. We have to get back to playing our game. Everybody has to play their game and raise the level. That's how we become a winner."

-Keith: "Any time you get on the road with just the team and just the guys is good for the team."

-Coach Q: "We definitely are guilty of being prettier or fancier or cuter at home. We have the road stretch where we get to make sure we are simple and hard to play against so we're hard to play against everywhere.''

-Keith: "I think it was pretty simple. I was out for a couple of goals there and left my partner for a couple of 2-on-1s that turned out to be the goals that cost us the game, unfortunately. I think it just comes down to me needing to play better the last two games — and maybe go back to more than that. I haven’t been my best, and I know I need to be better."
MontrealGazette: Blackhawks' Keith not panicking

-"The fun part is a two-day side trip to Las Vegas between games in Vancouver and San Jose, but the Hawks should keep this in mind: Early in the 1998-99 season there was a Las Vegas stopover cancelled by then general manager Bob Murray because of poor play during a 1-12-2 stretch. Instead the players had to spend a few extra days in the cold of western Canada."
DailyHerald: Will Bolland's return give Hawks the lift they need?

-"The latest major change has Troy Brouwer returning to the top line to play with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp -- for about the third time this season. After a decent run with the top six forwards, Viktor Stalberg drops down to more of a third line role."
