Videos: Relive the entire Blackhawks-Kings series

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

The Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Blackhawks just completed what was quite possibly the best seven-game series in sports history. Yes, you read that right, not just NHL history, but sports history. Yes, that's a lofty title to bestow, but I've never seen two teams locked in such an intense ...

Really, is there more that needs to be said? Patrick Kane's bad angle wrist shot at 4:06 of overtime beat Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Michael Leighton five hole (big shock there) and the Chicago Blackhawks won their first Stanley Cup since 1961 on Wednesday. Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews won the Conn Smythe Trophy ...

With Lineup Change Coach Q Puts Cup in Reach

So that's what it looks like when the Chicago Blackhawks are playing near their best, eh? Sunday's 7-4 beat down of the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals should be a stern reminder of what one of the league's best offenses looks like when it's clicking on ...
