Head Coach Joel Quenneville helps to paint the ice at the United Center on Jan. 10, 2013, before the start of the shortened 2012-13 season. "Each of the 30 franchises would face a grind of 48 games in 99 days, an open invitation for the survival of the fittest, the most motivated, the truly addicted," writes Blackhawks Team Historian Bob Verdi in the opening chapter of One Goal II.

Duncan Keith talks strategy with Ray Emery during practice before Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Minnesota Wild. "Late in Chicago's off-day between [Games 3 and 4], defenseman Duncan Keith found out that he needed to charter a private jet to whisk him back to Chicago to witness the birth of his first child, Colton," writes One Goal II contributor Emerald Gao in the series recap. "He rejoined the team for Game 4 as a new dad, completing a 'whirlwind 24 hours' by playing a team-high 23:57 in the 3-0 win." (Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/Chicago Blackhawks)

More than 2 million fans turned out to cheer on the Blackhawks as the team paraded through downtown Chicago to a rally in Grant Park. "Friday, June 28, 2013, shall be remembered in Chicago annals as a day when the city that works, didn't," Verdi writes in the chapter recounting the parade. "Hundreds of thousands and thousands of hundreds flocked downtown to create yet another standing-room-only crowd for the Blackhawks, who were crowned Stanley Cup champions again."
