The Chicago Blackhawks Won The 2013 Stanley Cup Championship, and we will be talking about and viewing every goal in their run to the Stanley Cup.

The Chicago Blackhawks were coming off two straight seasons of being eliminated in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and a little thing called the lockout.  The Chicago Blackhawks worked out as a team for the most part during the lockout led by their Captain Jonathan Toews, and all the work paid off with a 24 game point streak to start off the season.

The Chicago Blackhawks ended up being the President’s Trophy Winners that year, and hosted the Minnesota Wild in the first round of the playoffs, and to me one of the biggest goals of that entire run was scored in Game #1 of the series.

To me it was huge on two parts,  The Chicago Blackhawks after a great season didn’t lose Game #1 of the playoffs on home ice, and two it gave Bryan Bickell some huge confidence that would continue throughout the playoffs all the way to scoring the game tying goal late in Game #6 of the Finals.

The Chicago Blackhawks would easily defeat the Wild and then move on to the Detroit Red Wings who gave them all that they could handle and the refs gave us all that we could handle in Game #7. They called off the

But

Brent Seabrook

saved the day like he always seems to in overtime when after a huge

Little did we know that the Western Conference Finals would be the same the following year with a different result, but in 2013 it was the Chicago Blackhawks prevailing in 5 Games basically because Patrick Kane woke up and started scoring goals once again.  He dominated the series including a series clinching overtime goal to send the Chicago Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Finals were awesome with so many games going to overtime.  You had the shinpads goal in triple overtime by Andrew Shaw to win Game #1 or the Brent Seabrook Game #4 overtime winner in a wild shootout of game.

Of course, the one thing everyone remembers is the 17 seconds in Game #6.  Anytime you’re having a bad day and you are a Chicago Blackhawks fan, just watch the final two goals of the 2013. playoffs.
