Update from the morning skate

No real news from Monday's morning skate... Toews and Eager are playing, as expected. Hendry is out. Huet starts in goal. Bolland didn't skate. In fact, coach Joel Quenneville said Bolland's back hasn't gotten better in the last few days as the Hawks move closer to having to make a decision on what to do with their second line center - shut him down indefinitely or have the surgery that could have him back playing in a few months. "We're going to go day-by-day and where he is right now, he hasn't made any progress today so we'll see how his health is going," Quenneville said. "It's just more rest right now." Expected forward line vs. the Kings: Sharp - Toews - Byfuglien Ladd - Versteeg - Kane Kopecky - Madden - Brouwer Eager - Fraser - Ebbett And finally, why are the Kings playing tonight when Luc Robitaille is getting inducted into the Hall of Fame in Toronto? Robitaille is the Kings' all-time leading scorer and a team executive. Many in the front office will be in Toronto for the induction instead of at the United Center. Dumb move by the NHL.
