The next record that was broken happened on the way to the 2015 Stanley Cup final.  The Chicago Blackhawks after trailing in the Western Conference Finals 2-1 and 3-2 tied up the series and headed to Anaheim for Game #7.  The Chicago Blackhawks hadn’t won a Game #7 on the road since the 1965 Stanley Cup playoffs so this was not a sure thing for sure heading to Anaheim.  The good news for the Hawks was the fact that the Ducks were used to losing Game #7’s on home ice to eventual Stanley Cup Champions like they had done the previous season to the LA Kings.

The Chicago Blackhawks jumped in front early and often with the help of two quick goals by Jonathan Toews and really never looked back.  It seemed fitting at the time that another old record from back when Stan Mikita and Bobby Hull were on the ice for the Blackhawks would fall to this generation of Chicago Blackhawks.

The Chicago Blackhawks ended another number that had been around since the early stages of Chicago Blackhawks franchise history.  The Blackhawks had won 5 Stanley Cups with two of them being in the past 6 seasons, but they hadn’t won a Cup on home ice since the 1938 Blackhawks won the Cup in front of their home crowd at old Chicago Stadium.

The United Center witnessed it’s first Cup clinching game after

and Patrick Kane scored and

kept everything else out in the Hawks Game #6 2-0 win.  The crowd was electric that night and here is the final seconds.
