The Blackhawks had won two Stanley Cups in the previous five seasons, but 2015 Stanley Cup Final offered the group a chance they hadn't seen before: closing it out at home. In fact, you have to go back to 1938 to find the last time they hoised Lord Stanley on Chicago ice. 

"That was our first chance to do that even though we won a couple before," Patrick Kane said of June 15, 2015. "We were excited."

REWIND: Experience Proves Key in Game 1 Victory over Tampa

The Blackhawks were battle tested by the time they met the young, fast and skilled Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2015 Stanley Cup Final. 

Following a series against Anaheim where they were, at times, out played and playing from behind, adversity was just the name of the game. Against the Lightning, many of whom were experiencing the Final for the very first time, that experience -- not only of the year's run, but with many in the group playing their second or third Cup Final in a matter of years -- would prove to be the difference for Chicago.

FEATURE: Whether Years or Decades, Call from Hall of Fame Worth the Wait

Marian Hossa, Doug Wilson take opposing paths to worthy Hockey Hall of Fame nods

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

Receiving a call from the Hockey Hall of Fame is perhaps the ultimate achievement for a hockey player. It takes a lot to win a Stanley Cup, but it takes even more to be cemented among the game's all-time best. A distinct few don't wait long, just three years after their playing careers are over. Others wait, year after year, perhaps wondering if a call will ever come from the Toronto area as Spring turns to Summer.  

A pair of former Blackhawks were on each end of the spectrum Wednesday as the Hall elected its 2020 Inductees.

It had been a difficult few months for Antoine Vermette. Acquired at the 2015 trade deadline by the Blackhawks, the 11-year veteran felt the pressure of not being able to contribute to his new team. 

"I had experienced a trade before in season, but that one was definitely a different situation," he said recently looking back on his brief stint in Chicago. "I knew coming in before the trade (deadline) I was going to go to a team, it was well-known ... It was dragging and weighed on me for a little bit."
