So close, yet so far away.
The Chicago Blackhawks had every chance to get back to the Stanley Cup Final to defend their championship. They took a 2-0 lead against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final and despite relinquishing that edge, were leading 4-3 late in the third period before having the game sent to overtime.
That's where Alec Martinez's long shot deflected past Corey Crawford and ended the Blackhawks season.
It's not the end of an era in Chicago, but there will be changes for the Blackhawks.
Here's a look back on a season that some will feel ended too soon and a look ahead to the bright future next season offers.
