The Blackhawks started the lockout-delayed season with a record 24-game point streak and capped it with their second Stanley Cup championship in four years. The Hawks toppled the Boston Bruins in six games, scoring a pair of goals in 17 seconds in the Cup clincher in a season that nearly ended in the Western Conference finals in which the Hawks erased a 3-1 series deficit against Detroit.
