In the past, coach Joel Quenneville has experimented with different lines and pairings when things aren't clicking.
He is doing the same now with the Hawks stuck in a rut. The Hawks have lost seven of their last 10 games.
These were the lines Monday at practice:
Patrick Sharp -- Jonathan Toews -- Marian Hossa
Dustin Byfuglien -- Kris Versteeg -- Patrick Kane
Andrew Ladd -- Dave Bolland -- Troy Brouwer
Ben Eager -- John Madden -- Adam Burish
Quenneville also said Wednesday that he plans to keep Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith apart for the time being. The duo was split up Sunday vs. Columbus.
One option Quenneville is seriously considering is returning Dustin Byfuglien, who was moved to defense when Brian Campbell and Seabrook were injured, to wing.
''I like the versatility in Buff,'' Quenneville said. ''We may use him at forward a little bit here. We sat Nick [Boynton] out last game. We may put Buff up. But in games, it's a nice option to have Buff go back and forth.''
* Antti Niemi will start Tuesday against the Blues in St. Louis ... As far as Cristobal Huet getting a start on the Hawks' three-game trip, Quenneville said "We'll see."
