CHICAGO - Dave Bolland is looking to put an end to the war of words with the Vancouver Canucks.

The Chicago Blackhawks forward attempted to distance himself from his quip about the Sedin "sisters" following a 4-3 shootout victory in Minnesota on Wednesday night.

"I have the utmost respect for the Sedin twins, Alain Vigneault and all the Vancouver Canucks," Bolland told reporters. "It was just a little bit of tongue-in-cheek we had at the little radio show with some of the fans.

"I've got the utmost respect for Vancouver and what they do and what they do on the ice and how they do it."

The Blackhawks agitator drew the ire of the Canucks on Monday when he referred to Daniel and Henrik Sedin as "sisters" in a live radio interview where fans ask questions. He also said the Sedins wouldn't be welcome on his team and that there are a lot of "weirdos" in the city of Vancouver.

The Canucks immediately shot back.

"When you have comments like Bolland's, he's obviously an individual whose IQ is probably the size of a bird seed and he has a face that only a mother could look at," coach Alain Vigneault said Wednesday in Raleigh, N.C.

Chicago and Vancouver have faced one another in the playoffs the last three years. The next meeting between the teams comes Jan. 31 at Rogers Arena.
