Bryan Bickell - Special to

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 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

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
