Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville may turn his line blender on high Wednesday against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

Quenneville told reporters Tuesday, lineup changes could come, including combining Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews on the same line, removing defenseman Kimmo Timonen and possibly bringing rookie blue liner Trevor van Riemsdyk back into the lineup for the first time since he suffered a patella fracture Nov. 16.

Any way for the Hawks to force a Game 7.

Ten games down, six to go for the Hawks.
