For every team there is an image. That image is molded from hard work and determination. The image leads to perhaps a Stanley Cup for one team every year.
While fans enjoy the first celebration in 49 years, the ladies of the "Ice Crew" have been celebrating for years.
While they have remained dedicated to a team that has had its ups and downs, one thing is certain: They brought the fire 110 percent of every game. Win or lose, the pure desire to cheer is there.
A crew of 14 women drew the attention of crowds in 2009-10 and is a huge marketing tool by attending organization functions on a weekly basis.
Aside from the stars, who would be able to turn a bar promotion into an incessant rant on Hawk talk...or at least drool city?
Can you blame them? Take a look at each of the girls...
