Coaching

The savvy Joel Quenneville has won 660 NHL games and two Stanley Cups, with Chicago in 2010 and as a Colorado assistant in 1996. He has handled his roster admirably this season, getting the most out of superstars and blue-collar players alike.

Special teams

The Blackhawks made major improvements on the penalty kill this season, finishing third in the league at 87.2 percent and scoring five shorthanded goals. A year ago, they were ranked 27th. The power play has gained steam recently but has not been their strong suit, connecting on only 16.7 percent of its attempts.
