Soldier Field in March may be just as brutal as a December football game. The Hawks on Friday will test the outdoor ice rink on the field before the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series matchup with Pittsburgh on Saturday. Playing in Chicago has turned some of the Blackhawks into football fans. "Being from Canada, I know we have the CFL," forward Bryan Bickell said. "It's tough to follow. I'm not a big fan of the CFL. Being in Chicago for as long as I have been, I'm a Bears fan definitely.

"Zuuuuus!" That was perhaps the loudest and most frequent chant - in honor of Blackhawks center Michal Handzus - at the United Center during the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and it has returned several times since. It's how the fans salute the 37-year-old when he throws himself in front of shots, helps shut down the opposition's power play and wins big faceoffs. "He's been a leader ever since he got here, I think," 25-year-old forward Ben Smith said. "He's done the jobs that a lot of guys don't like to do, and he's done them really well.

Now that the Sochi Olympics are done, the Blackhawks get back to the business of keeping the Stanley Cup local. Depending on how you look at it, the Olympics were a success or a colossal failure. Team Canada did what Team Canada does, while Team USA failed in miserable fashion. Closer to home, here are five things the Blackhawks can do to repeat as Stanley Cup champs. Crush all Olympic hangover talk If the Blackhawks stumble post-Olympics, the fans and media will say NHL players don't belong in the Games because an injury can change the season - much like what happened...

You are missed, Andrew Shaw. Since the undersized forward was injured in Game 1 of the series against Minnesota, the Blackhawks have tried to duplicate his scrappy presence, especially in front of the Wild net. The Hawks were successful in Game 5, creating a pair of ugly goals by Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bickell in a 2-1 victory. "He's a little fireball out there," Bickell said. "I know when we see him in the locker room he doesn't want to shut up. " On Tuesday, the Hawks tried to eliminate the Wild in St. Paul, where they looked less than stellar in games 3 and 4 in this series.

Former White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle recently had to leave his beloved pit bull, Slater, behind when he was traded to Toronto due to Ontario's ban on the breed. Blackhawks winger Bryan Bickell's fiancée, Amanda Caskenette, can't imagine having to go through the same thing with their beloved 7-year-old pit bull, Bailey. "The way the ban and media in general portrays pit bulls couldn't be further from the truth," the 29-year-old Roscoe Village resident said via email. "We couldn't imagine our lives without Bailey and the joy, loyalty, and comfort she gives us. " While Bickell is known for doing...

Headed to Friday's Blackhawks parade and rally? You're in luck! Reading this paper or e-version as you're literally on the way to the big celebration? Uh … you're too late. YOU GONNA DIE. I'm here to save you from certain embarrassment and possible death with helpful tips and strategies for maximizing your Blackhawks Victory Rally experience. Think of this as an old-school Nintendo Power Strategy Guide, except Mario and Luigi are replaced by Toews and Kane and inputting the Konami Code on Bryan Bickell will only make him angry.

Duncan Keith entered the press conference area and set down a plastic bag holding four enormous bottles of juice. After what the Blackhawks defenseman and his teammates had just endured Saturday, you can't blame him for being thirsty. It can't be easy to recover from a double-overtime, Western Conference title-clinching win. Will the Hawks have enough left for an encore in the Stanley Cup finals? That will be decided starting Wednesday at the United Center. For the time being, amid their usual preparation for a playoff series, one can only imagine how much they...

SWM, 25, athletic build. Skates well, new to Chicago, looking for someone to hug. Well, not that kind of hug. You don't want to be hit on by Blackhawks left wing Brandon Bollig, who is known for wrapping his arms around opponents on the ice - right before swinging at them. These romps have made the hugger-cum-slugger a breakout star since he was called up from the Rockford IceHogs in February. Though fights are less common in the playoffs than regular-season games, Bollig said he still plans to do what makes him a hit - hit. ...

Technically, Thursday's Game 4 at Detroit was not a "must-win" for the Blackhawks. Even if they lost, they'd still have a chance to win the series. However, being 3-1 would make them very uncomfortable, and thus they needed to play with a high degree of desperation. How'd they do? RedEye tracked the game on our desperation meter (Scale of 0 to 5. In this case, the more desperate the Hawks looked and played, the better.) FIRST PERIOD Before the game even started, Hawks coach Joel Quenneville shook up the lines.

Moms are the best. They're always there when you need them, especially when it comes to advice. Of course, that requires that you actually pay attention. There were moments in Sunday's Game 5 between the Blackhawks and Minnesota when the message was getting through - and others when you weren't so sure. FIRST PERIOD You should know better. Come on, Brent Seabrook . You saw how the Wild broke your team's back with a late power-play goal in Game 4, and still you go and take a silly tripping penalty at center ice 29 seconds into the game.
