After the 2-1 loss to Buffalo on Friday, coach Joel Quenneville said changes were coming. If Saturday's practice is any indication, the Hawks will have a brand new set of lines for Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay.

This is how the Hawks skated during drills. The centerman is the first name listed:


Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Troy Brouwer



Patrick Sharp, Andrew Ladd, Marian Hossa



John Madden, Dustin Byfuglien, Kris Versteeg



Colin Fraser, Tomas Kopecky, Ben Eager

This would mark the first time that Toews and Hossa are not together. Quenneville is looking for more five-on-five offense; the Hawks have four goals in regulation over their last four games.
