Regin inserted into Blackhawks lineup for Game 4

LOS ANGELES -- The Chicago Blackhawks changed the makeup of their fourth line for Game 4 of the Western Conference Final against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Monday (9 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TNT, RDS).

Center Peter Regin is in the lineup for Chicago, replacing Brandon Bollig.

The composition of the Chicago lines appears to be changing as well.

Left wing Patrick Kane, who has not scored in the first three games of this series and is minus-3, has been promoted to the top line, joining Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bickell. The second line now consists of Patrick Sharp, Marcus Kruger and Marian Hossa, who had been the first-line left wing.

Michal Handzus, the second-line center in Game 3, is playing on the third line.

Los Angeles, which leads the best-of-7 series, 2-1, did not make any changes to its lineup.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
