Blackhawks vs Bruins - 2013 Stanley Cup Final

Blackhawks ready for Bruins in 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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
