Kopecky-Toews-Hossa
Ladd-Sharp-Kane
Byfuglien-Bolland-Versteeg
I meant that Kane, Sharp, and Versteeg did most of the damage after the lines got juggled in Game 4.

I remember thinking right at the outset of the series that Quenneville matching Byfuglien against Pronger was stupid. Of course big, slow, strong Pronger is going to neutralize big, slow, strong Byfuglien. Pronger's lack of mobility down low should have been exploited by players like Versteeg, Kane, and Hossa from the word go. Thankfully for the Hawks, Quenneville finally clued in after four games, and Pronger got pole-axed from that point onwards.
