CHICAGO (AP) - One little line tweak. One subtle strategic adjustment. That might be all it takes in this tight Stanley Cup finals.
That means coaches Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks and Claude Julien of the Boston Bruins could take on added importance heading into Game 5 of the deadlocked series in Chicago on Saturday night.
Fortunately for their teams, each of the coaches has a solid track record.
Quenneville guided the Blackhawks to the best record in the NHL during the regular season and was a finalist for the Jack Adams Award, given to the coach who contributes the most to his team's success.
The Bruins lost their final regular-season game to miss out on the Northeast Division title, but Julien's deft touch has helped them put together another playoff run.
