The Blackhawks’ 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night was the 684th in the head coaching career of Joel Quenneville. He is now tied with Pat Quinn for fourth in the history of the NHL.
Since taking over as the head coach in Chicago early in the 2008-09 season, Quenneville has an incredible 246-113-49 record. Of the coaches with the ten highest win totals in NHL history, only Scotty Bowman has a higher point percentage (.657) than Quenneville (.615).
Quenneville needs eight more wins to move into a third place tie with Dick Irvin, who coached the Hawks from 1930-32. Al Arbour is second in NHL history, 90 victories ahead of Irvin.
