February was a spectacular month for the NHL.
The league's first full month of action was chock full of storylines, with the biggest being the remarkable run of the Chicago Blackhawks.
When the month started, they had merely gotten off to a good start. When the month ended, they were in record territory.
The month of February also saw Sidney Crosby and Steven Stamkos ascend to positions of dominance on the scoring front, while coaches like Bruce Boudreau and Randy Carlyle led their teams up the ladder.
