Big Buff plays big role for Blackhawks @NHL

CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Blackhawks have a can't-miss option on offense.

Dustin Byfuglien (BUHF'-lihn) scored three game-winning goals during the Blackhawks' sweep of San Jose in the Western Conference finals. Chicago is in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1992.

Here's how Byfuglien sees it. The puck always finds him when he's in the perfect position. His view it this way: Big Buff's easy to find when he's open because he is hard to miss at 6-foot-4, 257 pounds.

Byfuglien's physical play, deft touch and ability to clear space have given his young and deep team another element in its quest for its first NHL title since 1961.
