The most-recent evidence occurred Sunday night at United Center, when more tweaks by Quenneville sparked a 2-1 victory against the Minnesota Wild in Game 5 of their Western Conference Second Round series.
The Blackhawks lead the best-of-7 series 3-2 heading back to Minnesota for Game 6 on Tuesday at Xcel Energy Center (9 p.m. ET, CNBC, TSN, RDS2), but it could've been a much different story were it not for some lineup changes paying off.
After watching his team stumble through a first period with six shots and trailing 1-0 at intermission, Quenneville went back to a familiar combination of forwards to spark the offense. Starting the second, he reunited a top-line combination that did a lot of damage in the regular season by putting left wing Patrick Sharp back with center Jonathan Toews and right wing Marian Hossa.
