kane speaking to the media
Patrick Kane addresses the media in Boston on June 23, 2013. "I think looking back to 2010, we were just satisfied being in that position," Kane said when asked about the prospect of winning the Stanley Cup on the road. "I don't think we really cared if it was in any building in the league or our own building. It was something that was all new to us. We were kind of living and dying on every play. We were excited to be there. I can say the same about this year. It's a heck of an opportunity we have tomorrow night." (Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/Chicago Blackhawks)
