Coach Q finds A in line changes 

June, 7, 2010

CHICAGO -- Standing outside the dressing room with a decisive 7-4 Game 5 victory in his back pocket and an extra day off to prepare for a possible Cup clincher, Chicago Blackhawks pivot Patrick Sharp remained firm.

"We really weren't feeling any more pressure tonight," Sharp said. "After Game 4, we knew it was a two-out-of-three. We blocked out any other thoughts. We just wanted to go out and skate our asses off."
