    Blackhawks need fresh legs, speed in lineupMay 30, 2014 12:00 AM
    Joel Quenneville has pushed the right buttons too many times to try to count them all, and he will go down as one of the greatest coaches ever.

    Facing a 3-1 deficit against the Detroit Red Wings in the conference semifinals a year ago, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville made an eye-opening lineup switch with his defensemen that worked for the rest of the playoffs. After splitting longtime defense partners Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook mid-season, he reunited them before Game 5 at United Center and the Hawks won to get back in the series. Wednesday night at the UC, facing a 3-1 deficit against the Los Angeles Kings, he did it again — only in reverse.
