Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- It happened against the St. Louis Blues, his first stop as an NHL bench boss, but Joel Quenneville wasn't in the mood to reflect on his career win total.

When the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Blues 4-0 at United Center on Wednesday night, Quenneville became the third coach in NHL history to reach 700 regular-season victories, joining Hall of Fame members Scotty Bowman (1,244) and Al Arbour (782) as the only coaches to reach that milestone.

Asked about it afterward, Quenneville spoke only of win No. 700 and not at all of the 699 that preceded it. Chicago hadn't beaten St. Louis in any of the first three games this season, and the victory helped the Blackhawks move ahead of the Colorado Avalanche into second place in the Central Division.

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
