About this Article

Not even Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville knew he's be getting this much from the third line of Andrew Shaw, Bryan Bickell and Viktor Stalberg. Thrown together after the lockout ended, the three Hawks have combined for 11 goals, 12 assists and are a combined plus-11. They've been the Hawks' best line on some nights through the first 19 games for a team that has yet to lose in regulation (16-0-3).
