It’s been a long trek from training camp to this point for the Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning.
TAMPA, Fla. — Kimmo Timonen’s trip to the Stanley Cup Final is a bittersweet one.
Trevor van Riemsdyk stood and talked for about 10 minutes, a smile on his face the entire time.
The Blackhawks’ top four defensemen’s minutes kept creeping up as the game wore on: 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 40 minutes and, for one, nearly 50 minutes.
ANAHEIM, Calif. — You hear it all the time from the great teams: regardless of their success level they always feel they can be better, be it overall or in certain facets of their game.
