CHICAGO - Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook was ruled out of Tuesday night's Game 4 against Vancouver, two days after taking a hard hit from the Canucks' Raffi Torres.

Coach Joel Quenneville said Seabrook has an upper body injury and would not play. Seabrook was driven to the ice in the second period Sunday night by a hit many Blackhawks thought should have resulted in a suspension for Torres.

Seabrook took another hit in the game, came out to be checked for a concussion and returned. Seabrook said Monday he was doing fine.

Dave Bolland will play on Tuesday night for Chicago after missing the final 14 regular-season games and all three playoff games so far. Bolland, a centre known for his defence, was effective in the last year's playoffs against Vancouver.

The Canucks are going for a 4-0 sweep of the defending champion Blackhawks.
