A lackluster performance in Tuesday's 4-1 loss at Pitsburgh didn't sit well with Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville. "It wasn't a very good game for us," Quenneville said. "I didn't like our game at all. All night long, our passing was off, our puck support wasn't there and our puck possession game wasn't what we traditionally see. It was tough." When asked if anyone impressed him, Quenneville said: "It's a short list tonight, so I don't want to mention anybody." If Quenneville still is evaluating players, many of them didn't help themselves. Jack Skille, Fernando Pisani and Ryan Potulny were minus-2 each. Viktor Stalberg had 1 shot on goal in 14 minutes. Jeremy Morin was minus-1 in just 11 minutes. Defenseman Nick Leddy played 20 minutes and was minus-1. Veterans Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook, Brian Campbell, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Dave Bolland and Troy Brouwer were in the lineup. Campbell and Hjalmarsson were minus-2. The Hawks were outshot 39-22. Kyle Beach scored the only goal. RING IT UP: The Hawks will receive their Stanley Cup rings at a private ceremony on Wednesday night. Every player was invited, but only Kris Versteeg will attend among those who have departed.
