The Chicago Blackhawks Sunday Viewing looks back at the Chicago Blackhawks 2015 Stanley Cup Championship Run
The Chicago Blackhawks took all of it’s fans on a pretty magical ride in the spring of 2015, and in the end they were able to hoist the Stanley Cup for the third time in 6 seasons. If you throw out the Minnesota Wild series, the Chicago Blackhawks never seemed to be dominating any series, but the later that the series went the stronger the Chicago Blackhawks became and ended up winning it all.
So with the Chicago Blackhawks getting eliminated early in the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs, to feel better I looked up some Chicago Blackhawks Youtube video and this is the one I stumbled upon this morning. Today’s Chicago Blackhawks Sunday viewing video showcases every goal scored in the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs.
The Chicago Blackhawks opened up against the Nashville Predators, and in what was a complete shock Corey Crawford gave up three goals in the first period and was yanked from the game by Joel Quenneville. Scott Darling didn’t give up a goal in the next 5 periods, and Duncan Keith won it in the 3rd overtime.
The series was kind of special for me personally, because I was in Bridgestone Arena for Game #5 where the Hawks took an early lead, but lost 5-2 with Filip Forsberg scoring a late empty net goal for a hat trick. The last 4 times I’ve watched the Hawks play on the road I’ve witnessed a hat trick. Two by Steven Stamkos, one by James Neal and the other a playoff hat trick by Forsberg which really is pretty amazing.
The Hawks came back again down 3-1 in Game #6 to win the series on another late Keith goal, and they moved on to Minnesota and the hottest goalie in the NHL in 2015 in the name of Devin Dubnyk. Brandon Saad scored in the 2nd minute of Game #1, and in a blink of an eye the Hawks swept the Wild right out of the playoffs.
The Western Conference Finals were a slug fest with Ryan Kesler trying to check the Chicago Blackhawks out of commission, but Jonathan Toews found the scoring touch in Game #7 with 2 goals and the Hawks were able to eliminate the Ducks with their first road Game 7 win since 1965.
The NHL Finals seemed to be dominated by the Tampa Lightning especially in the first four games, but the veteran group somehow managed to win 2 of the first four games with the help of newly acquired Antoine Vermette and some Teuvo Teravainen magic. In Game #6 it was fitting that Duncan Keith scored the winning goal in the 2-0 win.
Grab some popcorn and watch this almost 23 minute video of all the Chicago Blackhawks goals from their 2015 Stanley Cup Championship, it will take some of the sting out of the Chicago Blackhawks getting eliminated so early this year.
So what was your favorite goal of the playoffs? Tough choice with so many to choose from!
I hope you enjoyed this flashback to last summer when the Chicago Blackhawks were winning the franchised 6th Stanley Cup!
