Around the UC:

-Toews: "Personally, I'm not happy. I'm pretty sure that everyone (in here) feels the same way. Maybe that's our problem. People keep saying, 'It could be worse.' Well, I think this is, in our minds, as bad as it can get. We don't want to go down from here. We want to go up. We feel like that's the only way we can go."

-"The Blackhawks' Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews hung out Sunday night at The Underground."

-Campbell: "I don't know if it's something that we think is going to come easy for our hockey team, [but] nothing comes easy in this league. It doesn't matter if you're at home or on the road, it's never easy for us or any team to win. You have to work hard to earn your points in this league, and right now we're not working hard enough."

-Coach Q: ''We shouldn't be happy where we're at. We should be more desperate ... especially as the game progresses and the games are on the line. We should want to be in that surrounding and want to be out there and get the job done and do the right things.

-"The 19-year-old rookie was reassigned to Rockford of the American Hockey League on Monday after seeing action in two games with the Hawks. With the return of Marian Hossa from an upper-body injury during the Hawks' 2-1 loss to the Oilers on Sunday night and the impending return of center Dave Bolland from an upper-body injury possibly Wednesday night against the Coyotes, Morin was caught in a numbers game at forward. Fellow winger Bryan Bickell was a healthy scratch against Edmonton."

-Kane: "I played left wing in junior, so I'm used to it a little bit more. I think it could be a good fit, and I think if we're in their end more than ours it's not really going to make a difference."

-Tallon: "It's a work in progress, but perhaps a one-time challenge on a goal-related call for each coach would work if you have a timeout left. We're just trying to figure something out that doesn't make the game longer and more drawn out. I don't know if it has legs or not. You discuss it, see if it makes sense."
