Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was released from the hospital Saturday after being admitted for an ulcer on Wednesday.

"[Quenneville] is resting comfortably at home," Hawks head team physician Michael Terry said. "We will continue to monitor him and still anticipate a full recovery. We are working to determine when it is best for him to return to his coaching duties."

Acting head coach Mike Haviland said he spoke with Quenneville following Friday's 4-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets and before practice Saturday at the United Center.

"He certainly wasn't too happy," Haviland said. "He watched the whole game. We talked for a good 20, 25 minutes about the game. He just wasn't happy similar to everybody here."

But there was plenty of coach talk too, which included a discussion about line changes.

"We basically just talked about some missed opportunities we had," Haviland said. "We talked about juggling some of the lines around. He would have liked to seen some more guys [play against the Blue Jackets]. That first line had a great night, but we were looking for more from everybody else. That was the gist of the whole conversation."
