Blackhawks vs Bruins - 2013 Stanley Cup Final

Blackhawks ready for Bruins in Stanley Cup Final

Sunday, 06.09.2013 / 12:03 AM / Blackhawks vs Bruins - 2013 Stanley Cup Final

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Chicago Blackhawks' to-do list for this season included winning the Central Division title, finishing first in the Western Conference, capturing the Presidents' Trophy as the regular-season champion, and earning a trip to the Stanley Cup Final.

After accomplishing all of those tasks, there's one item left on their list: Bring the Stanley Cup back to Chicago.

The Blackhawks earned a chance to do that Saturday by defeating the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 in overtime to wrap up a five-game victory in the Western Conference Final. The only team remaining between Chicago and regaining the Cup it won in 2010 is the team that succeeded the Blackhawks as champion: the Boston Bruins, who swept the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final.

Like the Bruins, the Blackhawks got one scare during their three playoff rounds, overcoming a 3-1 series deficit to defeat the Detroit Red Wings in the Western Conference Semifinals one round after the Bruins blew a 3-1 series lead and had to overcome a 4-1 third-period deficit to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
