There really aren’t many ways you can go wrong with watching coverage of the Chicago Blackhawks’ 2015 Stanley Cup victory. Watching the boys hand the Cup off to one another is as entertaining as watching highlights from Game 6, or interviews after the final horn.
Here’s another option for your viewing pleasure: a video featuring all 69 Chicago goals from this Stanley Cup playoffs run, which spanned 23 games over 55 days. It’s a pretty quick clip, but it might also give you goosebumps, especially when Doc Emrick‘s voice plays over it toward the end.
There’s plenty of interesting notes to go along with looking at all these goals, and Chicago’s playoff scoring in general. Here are some of those:
— Heading into the Stanley Cup Finals, the ’Hawks had scored exactly two goals in a game twice in the playoffs, both against Nashville. They lost both games. The ’Hawks scored exactly two goals five times in the Finals and won four games.
— Chicago’s record when Patrick Kane scored at least one goal in a game these playoffs: 8-2
— Chicago’s record when Jonathan Toews scored at least one goal in a game these playoffs: 7-1
— Chicago’s record when Brad Richards scored at least one goal in a game these playoffs: 0-3
— As you likely could have guessed, Kane led the ‘Hawks in goals during the playoffs with 11 and points with 23. Toews and Duncan Keith were the other ’Hawks above 20 points for the playoffs, with 21 apiece.
