Blackhawks to play without two starters in Game 1 vs. Wild

The Chicago Blackhawks will be without two of their players for Game 1 of their first round playoff series because of lower body injuries.

Center Dave Bolland and goaltender Ray Emery will not play against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday because of lower-body injuries. Goaltender Corey Crawford, who went 19-5-5 with a 1.94 GAA this season, will get the nod in Game 1 and will be backed up by Henrik Karlsson. Bolland has missed this last three games and missed 13 games this season because of various injuries.

More from ESPN.com:

"We're going to rule them out for [Tuesday,]" Blackhawks Joel Quenneville said to ESPN.com. "We'll say day-to-day, both lower bodies. We're hopeful they'll be on the ice real soon. We expect them on the ice real soon."
Emery has missed two games due to a lower-body injury, which he suffered in Wednesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers. He also recently missed two games because of a lower-body injury. He is 17-1-0 with a 1.94 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage this season.
