Bolland

The Blackhawks will most likely be without the services of Dave Bolland and Ray Emery when they host the Minnesota Wild in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Thursday night in Chicago.

In Wednesday's media availability, Head Coach Joel Quenneville said both players were doubtful for Game 5, after making the trip to Minnesota while recovering from their respective lower-body injuries, though both continue to practice with the team.

The Blackhawks hold a 3-1 series lead over the Minnesota Wild and look to finish off the series on home ice.

"We want to have the same approach as last game," Coach Quenneville said Wednesday. "You want to be your best, and we still have to get better as we go along here."

Each week, the Blackhawks Blog will give you five stats you need to know about the Blackhawks this season.

1. Jonathan Toews is one of three Blackhawks and one of only 20 player in NHL history to post a +10 or better plus/minus rating in his first six seasons (since 1967-68, the first season the league began tracking the plus/minus stat).

The 24-year-old paces Chicago and is second in the NHL with a +28 plus/minus rating. Blackhawks alumni Cliff Koroll and Keith Magnuson also completed the feat during their tenure in Chicago. Of the 20 players in NHL history to do so since 1967-68, the only active skaters are Toews and Philadelphia's Simon Gagne.
