CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell did not play against the San Jose Sharks on Monday night.

Campbell, seen meeting President Obama on Friday in a walking boot, is nursing a left foot injury. He played just seven minutes in Sunday's game against the Washington Capitals before sitting out the final 2 1/2 periods.

John Scott played in his place.

Dave Bolland missed his second consecutive game after leaving last Wednesday's contest against the Tampa Bay Lightning with a head injury. Quenneville said there has been no change in Bolland's status and it's unknown when he will return to the ice.

The Hawks hosted the Sharks after a week-long trip against Eastern Conference foes. They had lost three in a row after winning the previous eight. The first game back at home after a road trip is sometimes thought of as a dangerous game for the home team.

"I find there is a difference between Eastern trips and Western trips, and we're not going to use that as an excuse at all," Quenneville said before the game. "No, we're ready to play."

Corey Crawford faced former Hawks' Stanley Cup winning goaltender Antti Niemi, who entered Monday 3-0 against the Hawks this season.
