The NHL leading Chicago Blackhawks are on a mission. Disappointed with their early exit from the playoffs the last two years, the Blackhawks were a tired, unhealthy, and unfocused team. Call it a Stanley Cup hangover if you wish, the fact is that the Blackhawks of the past two seasons, only in part resembled the team that hoisted the city’s first Stanley Cup in nearly 50 years back in 2010. Several factors can be attributed to the resurgence in the play of the Chicago Blackhawks that has led to their recent record setting performance.
Washington -- Lord Stanley, a good portion of the Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks, President Obama and 300 or so spectators celebrate Chicago sports and last June's amazing run.

Here are the shots of the 2010 Stanley Cup Champions! The Blackhawks celebrated on the ice and in the locker room and thanks to Mike del Tufo of http://centericehockeymagazine.com/ for these great shots. He got doused with champagne but as you can see it was well worth it. Click here to see them!
Most hockey fans have heard the name Bernie Nicholls before. He scored 475 goals in the NHL and he averaged more than a point-per-game for his career so if he was talking, I was listening.
