Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane grab many of the headlines for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Those two superstars played a huge role in the Blackhawks' 2009-10 and 2012-13 championship seasons, and they were joined by fellow stars like Patrick Sharp, Duncan Keith, Marian Hossa and Brent Seabrook.

Take Game 6 of last season's Stanley Cup Final. Role player Bryan Bickell scored the tying goal and fellow grinder Dave Bolland scored the Stanley Cup-winning goal against the Boston Bruins.
