The Chicago Blackhawks have been shuffling their cards like a Vegas dealer the last couple of games against Minnesota trying to find a spark. They might need to do it out of necessity in Game 5.

That's because forward Brandon Bollig has a hearing set with the NHL's Department of Player Safety for his hit on the Wild's Keith Ballard on Friday night.

Bollig was called for boarding Ballard, a bad hit from behind into the corner boards. It wasn't a tough call for the officials on the ice and it shouldn't be that tough for the officials in the NHL offices either.

Bollig has played in nine games this postseason but doesn't play much, averaging just 6:09 per game. He is pointless in those nine games and is minus-3.
