Bickell: Hometown set to share in Cup excitement

Bryan Bickell - Special to NHL.com

Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell has become a prominent figure during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, taking on a key offensive role for a team seeking to win its second championship in four seasons.

Bickell, 27, has scored eight goals over the first three rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs -- one fewer than he had in 48 regular season games. In the Western Conference Final, Bickell scored goals in three consecutive games, then added a pair of assists in the clinching Game 5 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Bickell has been gracious enough to agree to keep a player blog that will appear on NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final.

In his first installment, Bickell talks about how his recent celebrity has cast attention on his family and hometown, as well as what he's doing to prepare for Game 2 of the Cup Final against the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
