The Chicago Blackhawks are set to face the Boston Bruins in the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Final and are considered by oddsmakers to be the favorite to be the team hanging another championship banner come October.
There was a point in time when it didn't look like the 'Hawks would make it out of the second round. After going down 3-1 against the Detroit Red Wings in the conference semifinals, they collectively found their game and reeled off three straight victories to get into the Western Conference Final.
Since Game 4 of the second round, Chicago has gone 7-1 while outscoring their opponents 24-16. They've done a lot of things right but still have a lot of work to do to earn those final four victories needed before lifting the Cup.
