Seabrook1jpg.jpgBlackhawks coach Joel Quenneville has never been one to hesitate to alter his lines and defensive pairings if he thinks they aren't clicking or things could be better.

So it shouldn't be a huge surprise that after Friday's 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators in Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinals that Quenneville shook things up at practice on Saturday.

Quenneville wouldn't commit to any of the changes when asked by the media, but he said longtime defensive mates Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook will "likely" be together.

"It's been a while since they've been playing together, but we know that's a great tandem and they were work well together," Quenneville said. "Across the board, there might be a couple of new pairs as well. They've all played together at some point all year so there is some familiarity there."

Here were the lines and pairings at Saturday's practice:

Andrew Ladd -- Jonathan Toews -- Marian Hossa
Patrick Sharp -- Dave Bolland -- Patrick Kane
Troy Brouwer -- John Madden -- Kris Versteeg
Ben Eager -- Colin Fraser -- Tomas Kopecky

Duncan Keith -- Brent Seabrook
Niklas Hjalmarsson -- Brent Sopel
Jordan Hendry -- Dustin Byfuglien
