CHICAGO — Though the Bruins aren’t here yet, the Blackhawks kicked off Media Day by giving the media plenty to work with. Coach Joel Quenneville shuffled his lines in practice, most notably splitting up Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane.

The two were put together with Bryan Bickell in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, but the lines in Tuesday’s practice were as follows:

Sharp – Toews – Hossa
Bickell – Handzus – Kane
Saad – Boland – Shaw
Bollig – Kruger – Frolik

Keith – Seabrook
Oduya – Hjalmarsson
Leddy – Rozsival


In Games 4 and 5 against Los Angeles, Chicago’s top-six looked like this:

The Bruins are expected to be at the United Center sometime around 2:30 CST.
