ANAHEIM -- Almost exactly one year later, the Chicago Blackhawks still remember the sting from Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alec Martinez's goal that ended their bid to repeat as Stanley Cup champions.
They remember the fluttering shot from the point that found its way past goalie Corey Crawford. They remember the stunned silence inside United Center after Game 7 of the Western Conference Final ended at 5:47 of overtime. They remember the empty feeling of coming just short of playing the New York Rangers in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.
It's a feeling they've tried to erase but will carry with them into Game 7 of the 2015 conference final against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Saturday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).
