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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
