Sports Open Line: Cardinals Michael Wacha & Trevor Rosenthal, Blues Forward Alex Steen, & Blackhawks Coach Joel Quenneville
Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha joins Chris Hrabe a day after earning the victory in Game Four of the NLDS series against the Pirates.
The Blackhawks’ series lead has been trimmed to 2-1 with another game at the Staples Center — where the Kings have now won 15 straight — Thursday night.
Joel Quenneville won Jack Adams Award with St. Louis in 2000. Paul MacLean (pictured) played for Blues and coached minor league affiliate Peoria Rivermen before guiding an NHL team.
Joel Quenneville’s Chicago squad looks to continue streak of at least a point per game in standings.
This is Hitchcock’s first career Jack Adams award and fourth time being nominated.
Joel Quenneville suffered a small ulcer, doctors say.
“He is currently in stable condition and is being treated for an undisclosed health concern today, not of cardiac nature,” the team physician said in a release.
